Stan is very correct, The FZ-35 is the top gun among super zooms. However, from your list I would go with the Canon SX-120 or the Sony H-20, with the SX-120 being my top choice.

Have a great day.

And I'm not worried about video , I've got a camcorder for that..

Oh yea and I'd like some manual control since I'd like to play with it a little working our way up to a DSLR

I do seem to lean towards the SX120 but I want to make this purchase last until we buy DSLR next year

I found the Panasonic FZ35 for $317 but still out of my budget a little..

CASD-

I use the Canon SX-120 as a pocket camera, and I really like it a lot. Here is a photo sample which is really a 100% crop as well.
