Hi there again...

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I have finally narrowed my selection of dc to to sony w5 or the kodak z740.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I love the sony, --> I used to have a P8.. but wish it had more zoom

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I love the kodak --> great reviews... I'm hesitate because it is a 'Kodak'

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I like the Panasonic LZ2 --> but it hs some low light issues from my reading of reviews.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I really only need a P&S, don't want to fiddle with settings.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Size at this stage is not important

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Budget covers both

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I can go either way (camera speaking of course)

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Do I really want superzoom or not??? what should I be asking myself?

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I am soooooo close to deciding

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Thank you so much!!!

if you don't mind the size increase, why not go for the superzoom z740.. the w5s zoom starts at 34mm equivelent, while the z740 starts at 38.. so you don't lose much wide angle.. but when you are talking telephoto, the w5 only goes to 114mm equivelnt, whereas the kodak z740 goes all the way out to 380mm equivelent.. so you are gaining ALOT of telephot without sacrificing much wide angle.. the choice is obvious if you don't mind the size.. plus all i have read to date says that the z740 is the best camera kodak has made so far and could be argued to be the best value in superzooms.. so quit pullin out your hair and go get one..
