Default Panasonic cameras

Hello,
Am a bit confused. Is there any major difference between the various series of Panasonic compact Cameras - LX, FZ and GH. Which of these is the best? And for general use, travel, people, family, some nature etc .... would the latest FZ 100 be better than any of the other Panasonics? My budget is c. $ 450 - 500. Thanks.

There is quite a bit of difference between them and which is best depends on your needs. The GH2 is a fantastic camera and will require lenses and such; it is outside your budget though anyway. The FZ100 is a nice bridge camera and would be the best choice for an all around family camera. The LX5 has a larger sensor and will give you better low light performance than the FZ100 and better portability. However, it only has a 3.8x zoom.

There's the GF1 and G1/G10/G2 as well, all m4/3 (like the GH2 mentioned by FiveO). The G1 is Pana's 1st m4/3...excellent camera going for peanuts since the G10/G2 were released. The GF1 (also an excellent little camera), is compact and similar to the LX3.
