I'm pretty sold on the FZ50. Ihave steeredaway froma dSLR because of the extra expense and hassle of multiple lenses, plus I would really like to take some family videos of soccor games, etc. In addition, I don't want to do post-processing on every photo -- not enough time or desire. People on this forum seem to thinkthe noise on an FZ50 is "terrible" and the noise reduction smears too much detail. I'm planning to do some portrait -- indoors and outdoors, as well as candids of my family. The portraits are the only prints I will be enlarging past 8X10, so my mainquestion is....

***Don't most people prefer to lose a little detail in portraits (facial pores, wrinkles, fly-away hairs, etc), or is a loss of detail in portraits a bad thing?***

I won't be doing many nature or sports shots (besides candids of my kids), so I don't think really high ISOwill ever be a must.Will the FZ50 meet my needs? Is there a better P&S that still has lots of manual control that I should consider instead?
