Thanks again Five-O.

I have jsut one more question to all you expereinced camera users. .. If you were to buy compact camera with good zoom, which would you buy and why?

Nearly there! When I do buy a camera I will be sure to place my thoughts on it on this board.

Cheers

Well I already purchased the ZS7 and it was b/c of it's very good IQ, great lens, great build quality and versatility - and I would buy it again. I think the SX210 is a solid choice also. I prefer it's color rendition to Panasonic's but its lens is inferior. The Nikon S8100 is definitely one I would consider because of its 1080p video and the slight improvement in low light b/c of the CMOS sensor. However, Nikon's history of poor P&S cams over the last few years would worry me. The Samsung HZ30/35 is worth a look also.

I had one and sent it back. The ZS7 was much nicer IME.
