You should get the Fuji HS10.

Hello Biro,

you ended up your entry saying:

"If you need to buy now, then give the Nikon a try - ........... If you don't like the Nikon, send it back and buy the Canon or Panny."

I am now doing just that - even without having read your entry :-)

You might want to read about my first experience with the P100 - in summary:

OK camera, many "cool" functions, great video and display, not so good in low-light - BUT
the 26x zoom is just amazing. If you are in it for the zoom - the P100 must be a very, very strong candidate. I will write more after having tried out the other two (Panasonic and Canon)

Default Nikon P100

[QUOTE=TheDenverFan;1062688]I am looking for a superzoom to replaced my aged Canon S3 IS. The Canon SX1 has a 20x zoom and the Nikon P100 a 26x zoom. Either is fine - I just want the one with the best picture quality.

I understand the image quality beyond 10 feet is very poor and I've heard this now from several sources. I will find out in person on Sat as I will attend a sponsored rep event. I also am leaning toward the SX1. It would have been the Fuji HS-10, but you cant use the zoom properly for movies, no motor!

Marsh-

The Panasonic FZ-35 remains a very user friendly, easy to use super zoom. The P-100 has consistently had only average to fair image quality.

The FZ-35 is a good choice. Do you know if it has filter threads or a filter kit. I'm selling my Canon S5-IS that has a filter kit and 58mm Hoya 81A I'd like to reuse if possible. I asked lensmate.com and haven't gotten a response yet.

Yes, the Panasonic FZ-35 lens mount is indeed threaded. It used 46mm filters.
