NOTE: my Eanglish is notvery good, so please forgive any grammar mistakes.

After i've studdied all possible reviews, trying to find answers to my questions, i got more lost in the world of digital photography:?....

However i have some ideeas:

1. olympus c765uz (but has no AF lamp).

2. panasonic lumix fz-10 (no af lanp, no TIFF or RAW)

3. Fuji s5100 is allmost everything i need (...hope the quality of pics will be better then before, but i don't want to hope to much.... justto avoid a hugh dissapointment).

4. panasonic fz20 (a bit over budget, but in the end it is probably better then all other cameras).

If anybody has answers to my dillema, please help quickly, before i make a big mistake by spending a lot of money on something i won't like & won't be usefull to me.

P.S: I forgott to mencion that i'm 18years old, from Romania, 1st year student at landscapearchitechture (in need of a camera to last a few years)& that i have a friend to buy the camera from NewYork (no transport payment), because in Romania the prices are higher, and the income, more then 10 timeslower then in USA.:sad:

Thanks:-)!!!!

If you're not planning on doing prints over A4 size, I would recommend you to look at these 2 cameras: Panasonic FZ3 and Canon S1 IS. They're both 3Mp but they have image stabilization, which is fundamental if you plan on using the optical zoom at lot or taking photos at slower shutter speeds. Quality-wise, I think the panasonic is better but the Canon has some other advantages (uses AA bateries, comes with a 32Mb CF card, swivelling LCD,etc).

I have no IS on my M410R and use the zoom at full end a lot with no probs. It wont be any use to a landscape photographer either. take a look at the Kyocera i have before you make your mind up cos it is a very very good camera. I am an Architectual Technician and the camera works well for me so go check out the Kyocera forum.

Good luck mihaitzapop with whatever you get
