I've been a happy Fluzie (Fz10) owner for nearly a year now and I think I;ve learnt quiet a bit. I've been thinking of getting a DSLR - Nikon the D70 or even D50 + a nice Nikkor AF 50mm f1.8 lens for portraits or if I can wait then may be the Pana DSLr when it comes out in 2006. I've had a look at the new 350Xt and don;t like the ergonomics at all. However, I still keep on being drawn to the Panasonic LC1 becuase of its discreet but classic design, manual zoom and aperture rings, 250k pixel LCD - although I dont like the EVF and above all that Leica lens. I'm aware of the downside of's the LC1, esp on ISO 400 and lots of noise, etc. Any assistance would be really appreaciated. I still intend to keep my FZ though.
