I agree with slipe on the older Z models - Z3 uses the same 5 MP CCD as the Z1 and V10. I had a V10 for a short period of time and I find that the low light performance is not half as good as the F series.

However, I am not sure about the new Z5fd that uses a 6 MP CCD. If you read the specs posted in dpreview, this 6 MP is a smaller 1/2.5" CCD than the 1/1.7" of the famous F series. Therefore we don't know what the low light performance is like. I can only find one review at trustedreview (URL posted by deadzone above), but I don't think trustedreview is really a professional reivew site, more like casual user review.

I think I'm going to stick to one of those first two cameras, or the Nikon coolpix s7.

Anyone else have any opinions on which to get?
