Is the Z3 worth a look?
Dec 17, 2004

I'm looking at upgrading my aging Fuji 2800 and have found some conflicting info and mixed reviews about the Z3. I've looked at Jeff's review on DCResource that talks about soft and noisy images and poor low light performance. But megapixel mentions that it has "excellent image quality" and imaging-resource talk its good low light performance.

Things about the Z3 that appeal to me include the image stabilised zoom (althought 12X is a bit more than I really need), the fast shutter response, the ulta high speed mode, the rechargeable AA batteries, and the hot shoe.

But I am concerned about the reported image quality issues. Can any regular Z3 users out there ease my mind? Or should I look elsewhere.

Thanks,
Mark
