Replacing the FZ35 ?!?
3 months ago

What do you think ... anything current worth considering? LF1, Stylus1, Stylus100, ZS40 (or 35), others ? Willing to consider all brand names.

Looking for real world experience with different cameras not just links to reviews which I've read.

My needs ....

Primarily as a travel camera (I currently pair the FZ35 with an LX3)

Form factor highly important - thus FZ200 and FZ70 are out of consideration -too big

IQ must be at least as good as the FZ35 or better (larger sensor)

Would like a bit more reach than the FZ35 (which is 18X) - willing to go less if other factors make for a winning combination in another camera

Good video capability needed as I mix still images with vid clips in travel show presentations shown on an HDTV

VF is desirable but not a deal killer if LCD is high quality and / or tilting

Am I asking for "Pie in the Sky" ?

Price: Prefer to stay under $600

"Should I stay or should I go"?

All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
