No FZ60

No FZ60 (anytime soon).

Fingers crossed that Fuji will provide a S200fs (using their EXR sensor and with CA reduced).

From Panasonic interview:
Q:

One of the big questions we've had from our community concerns the FZ50 replacement. A lot of people are saying 'if I wanted a G1 I would've bought an SLR'. Is this now a discontinued line?
A:

The problem is price. Now that entry-level digital SLRs are so cheap it's incredibly difficult to sell a bridge type camera at the high end. When we introduced the FZ50 the price was something like $599 but now I don't think we could sell it for that much. Of course we're not going to give up on such kind of products but in the next year or two we currently have no plan introduce another model.

Q:
So the FZ50 is now discontinued?
A:
Yes, it will be shortly. But sometime we'd like to come back to this area.
