Spotted the Panasonic FX8 at Circuit City for 299.00. I was planning on waiting on the FX9 but not sure the FX9 is worth 100.00 more. Thought I would mention this in case someone else was looking for a good deal on a compact digicam. My main concern is the lack of an optical viewfinder. Do not like this trend...

BigCTM-

Thanks for posting the price on the FX-8. It is a nice little camera and that price is a cool $100 less than the FX-9.

Please do. I'll be getting something like this within the month. Narrowed down to FX8 or 9, Casio 750, or Fuji F10. Considered Canon SD's but theLCD problem is too daunting. Mostly for my wife and casual take anywhere shooting. have an FZ5 for more'deliberate' shooting.

Here is an example of what a Fuji F-10 can do. It is a great digital camera.

Thanks Sarah. Yes, it certainly has its fans and advantages.It's a little larger and heavier than the others. My thought for carrying around would be hooking to a lanyard and slipping into a shirt pocket ... would you find that workable?

Yes, I have carried the Fuji F-10 both on a lanyard and in my purse quite successfully.

I will be anxious to hear your results, am still contemplating the FX8. I'm off to the States and Hawaii in a few months, will still take my FZ10 which I LOVE but want something compact when visiting Disneyland, Universal etc. No viewfinder????? HHmmmm
