Jedi, I own a Canon A80 which is a 3x zoom, and I am constantly wanting a larger zoom for capturing pics my 3 year old. This is why I am also in the market for a new cam. I am looking at a Konica Minolta A200, and the Panasonic FZ20. I also mainly take pictures of my family and special occasions, and when they are indoors, I have often found that I need more power in my flash than what is built into the A80, so I am also looing for a cam with a hotshoe for attaching an external flash. I think you are on target if you look at the FZ20, the A200 the G6 and the Konica Minolta Z5.



My opinion for what it's worth! :G
Great, I'll look into those cameras. I'm really a newb when it comes to all of this. I currently have an old Sony DSC P1 that was given to me 2-3 yrs ago. So I'm trying to review the best that I can and ask questions to help in this purchase.

I understand that Sony users will always stick with Sony, Canon userswith Canon, and so on. But for me, I just want to buy a good camera that I'll be happy with. As long as it has a good zoom and fast speeds as not miss any good pics, I'll be happy.

I'm going to continue my hunt but thanks to all who have helped me so far!
