Konica Minolta Z2/Z3? Not Nikon... anyway, you should also wait and see when Z5 will show up (it might be worth getting that instead)...

Anyway, the best ultra-zoom if you don't care about video is the Panasonic FZ3 (or higher-end FZ20)...

I have the FugiS5100/5500, and am impressed with it, I think it is better then the Z2 go to the Fugireview

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilms5100/page8.asp

and you'll see less noise &cleaner pics. But, overall I haven't compared them head to head, but Ialso think the Z2 is flimsier IMHO.

The Fuji has no image stabilization but it seems to have better image quality.

If I were you, I would wait a bit (March/April) for the newer ultra-zooms to come out. The prices of the older ones will drop even more so you can swing a decent one by then. Or maybe one of the newer ones will be affordable...
