Amazon has the FZ47 for just under $255. It has the FZ150 for just under $388.
Newegg has twice had the FZ47 for $189. If you want, you can join their mailing list and get notification if it drops again.

robbo had mentioned something i thought about only after i posted - size. do you have any idea what size camera she'd be happiest to carry and use? most of the casual picture takers i know tend to like smaller cameras, and actually prefer the smaller size to better quality pics. it seems like you want the best of all combinations, which makes sense to me, but also means decisions are harder.

i dont think she would like a small camera because they are easier to drop plus i use it my self.

well, she might well like the 47 - i went out to try it and the 150 today, and they are pretty large - the size of a smaller entry level dslr. they felt very well made, everything worked very well that i tried.

yea i like the looks of the 47 and the 150.both are good cameras,the 150 is just a bit higher end.i do favor it.but i'm not sure the price off sets the difference in the 2 cameras.
