One thing I did notice in the specs, was the continuous 9 fps burst mode. I don't know how many shots you can shoot off at that speed, but if its continuous burst like the 5.5 fps on the FZ200, it might be useful...

The FZ70 9 fps is akin to the FZ200's 12 fps - single focus used for all frames. It also sports the same 5.5 fps AF as the FZ200.

Unfortunately, there's no joy for you - the 9 fps mode is limited to 3 frames max.

You learn something new every time you press the shutter

Thanks Kardster, I found that out later myself when Sherm posted the link to the advertisement for the FZ70. 9 fps for 3 shots isn't that great, but it now has light speed AF and does 5 fps with AF between shots, so along with that long lens and these other improvements its is now a serious contender to its rivals, whereas the FZ60 was really struggling to be better than anything its rivals offered.
