Isager-

I have not seen any professional reviews of the Panasonice FZ-18, but based on a personal experience with both the Olympus SP-550 and the Panasonic FZ-7, I think that the posted photo samples from the FZ-18 I have seen thus far, point to the fact that the FZ-18 will be the better camera providing most of your shots are taken out of doors. The FZ series cameras seem to exhibit a lot of noise with photos taken inside, and it is best to use ISO settings of ISO 200 and below.

I have attached an indoor shot taken with the FZ-7 at ISO 200 handheld, without flash. It is a fairly good photo, but yes, it does show some noise in the photo. So hopefully, we will soon see a review of the Panasonic FZ-18 by Steve.

Here is a FZ-18 photo posted by a user in Canada, where the FZ-18 went on sale first.
