I've had the P850 now for about 3 months and I have been mostly happy with the results, but the auto focus is a PITA and the loud zoom in video, "blurry" photo quality and horrible battery life are starting to get annoying.

There are a few cameras that I looked at as a possible replacement for the P850. They include the Sony H2 and H5, Canon S2 and S3 and the Panasonic FZ7.

I need atleast 10x zoom, sharp image quality with low noise, decent night photos but they don't have to be great as I don't take them that often and manual focus. I'm not sure if any of these cameras have manual focus:? Should I return the P850 for one of these? And which one is the one for me in your opinion?

I really appreciate any input:cool:

In your situation ?

Either the Sony H5 or the Canon S3 will do.
