Default Which camera should I buy? Nikon P100, Fujifilm FinePix HS10? Or what do you suggest?

I am looking for a nice quality camera with a super zoom.
Advise me and recommend me any models you may think. I like the ones in the title, but nothing is set in stone.
Thanks in advance.

The Fuji HS-10 and the Sony HX-1 are good choices. Forget Nikon's P-90 or the P-100, as well as the Kodak Z-981, and the Pentax X-70 and X-90.

The FZ35 has allot of fans on Steve's just do a quick search of the panasonic forum and you will see allot of samples, with different setups. It is a very nice megazoom.

Among conventional super zooms, the Panasonic FZ-35/38 is first followed by the Canon SX20.

I have had the Fuji HS10 for about 3 days now and am really happy with it. Sold my Pany FZ28S. The only drawbacks for me are the noise factor when using video, you can hear the zoom clicking out or in. The other is that they advertise a digital zoom of 2x... it is not true, there is NO digital zoom on this camera. (I even checked with Fuji).

Nope, I mean there is no digital zoom. I searched for hours because a lot of review sites said it had 2x digital zoom. When I was stumped, I called Fuji and they said it was probably a misprint, there is no digital zoom. Look on the Fuji site and they don't list one.

I decided to go with the HS10. And I really like it. It takes excellent pictures.
