What do you guys think. I have my eyes set on a Panasonic DMC FZ5, but in this price range I have noticed that it is possible to purchase used digital slr's like Canon's groundbreaking D30 (body only, which is ok as it takes ef lenses which I already have ). I know that the early D30 is a 3 megapixel camera and the Panasonic is 5mp, but I have a sneaky suspicion that the Canon may be the better option. What do you think?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Since you already have lenses, you have little to lose in trying the D30. Look for a good deal and simply resell it if you find it isn't what you want. You should be aware that a day of lugging the D30 and lenses around is going to be a much different experience than a day with the FZ5 hanging from your neck.
