JJB, you can find many Panasonic interchangeable lens cameras at Amazon for under $600. For example, the Panasonic Lumix GF3 12 MP Micro 4/3 Compact System Camera with 3-Inch Touch-Screen LCD and 14-42mm Zoom Lens new for $365.99 with free shipping.

But, to get a model with an EVF you will have to pay a little more. For example, the G3 is available for $469.

You can add another $245 and pick up the 45-200mm from B&H. Of course, if you want a one lens solution, it will run more. But, I think your point was to say that $600 wouldn't buy very much, and my point is that it will buy more than you might think.

But, the bottom line is that the FZ150, and hopefully the FZ200, seriously challenge the features and IQ that we are accustommed to seeing in midlevel DSLRs from Nikon and Canon. And, when you tire of lugging lenses, the FZ offers a lightweight one lens solution. It's just not a perfect solution for all photographers.
