Yes Sarah thats only 400mm equivalent?...I am looking a little further away...I have a 100-400mm Canon with the 1.4X TC and on the 7D thats equivalent to 896mm for now...so I'll play the waiting game a little longer and see what materializes from Panasonic and Olympus on the 4/3 camera's I think Oly has a 70-300mm out also that will work?...

Yes Dustin I have been exploring all the options of lens for the Panny and Oly 4/3rds cameras...I even went and put my hands on the Oly EPL1 the other day...I was surprised at how large it was in reality!...but I can see one in the near future...looking at some of the Pro's pic's they are very capable cameras and would be great for hiking and biking!!!

Sorry for the thread hi-jack!!!

If you do not need the 30x zoom, I would go with the fz-35. It seem a bit easier to operate. And 150 dollars less. But if you need the big zoom the HS10 currently can not be match.

But for your need a dslr with a ultra wide angle would be the better too. The megazooms at 25-28mm will not be wide enough.

If I had to chose a megazoom with your needs the 25mm would be the better choice of with the hs10.

I do appreciate your answers, thank you my friends. I know SLR is the best, but I dont want to go there.
So, actualy I do not need 30x, so I am only wondering about image quality, general performance and small details that can make the diference. Of course the wide angle of 24 is attractive (although pany's 27 is adequate), but going for 24angle, I do not want to risk loosing the rest, quality etc. So the question is: Which camera (between pan.fz35 and fuji HS10 offers better 1)quality, 2)general performance, 3)better 'something else', leaving aside the cost, for the moment.
If you can give me this help, I suppose I will take the final decision!
Thanks again!
alexander

They really both offer about the same in quality, performance the HS10 is a bit newer but really do not out except for the wide angle and longer zoom. Which could make a difference in tight places. If you do not want to leave anything to chance. The wider angle would be worth the extra money for your needs.

I am still sceptical about which one, among panasonic fz38 and fuji HS10, to scoose.
- I have read only very good reviews about pany
- I have read excelent and not realy good reviews about juji...
Do I have to read more reviews?
alexander

p.s. One more question though, does any of these two cameras have that aiding light, to help focus in dark scenes?
