What I'm looking for is....

  • Range of £300
  • Manual control for stills
  • Manual control for video
  • High speed shooting for video to create slow motion

Just find it hard to believe that nothing seems to beat a 2 year old camera so far?!

The Fuji X20 looked like a strong contender, probably has the edge on the image quality on the stills side but according to the reviews the video mode feels slightly tacked on, not much control and average quality

I get the impression digging around that Panasonic have dropped the LX series as they weren't profitable enough, looks like they shoved too many good features into the one camera!

Excellence spells doom for Panasonic small sensor camera ranges. Something about being so good no-one buys them. He says - sarcastically.

The FZ50: DSLR handling of a bright, non-extending Leica 35-420mm F2.8-3.7 lens. I live in hope that Mr Ichiro Kitao, Mr Michiharu Uematsu and Mr Yoshiyuki Inoue have triggered the update to the FZ50. Please update the FZ50. It is unique and users of it cannot update without compromise of one or more of its combination of features.
