raywes: Nothing has come along in a while to compete with the Sony HX100v, but this changes everything. Along with the Panasonic FZ150, these two cameras will bed the new leaders I predict. And I thought I had my mind made up about purchasing the FZ150 already.
the FZ150`s picture quality can only math the sx40`s picture if its used in raw mode and then converted to jpeg according to several reviews i have read, at the end of the day its PICTURE QUALITY THAT COUNTS not speed or gimmick features.....PICTURE QUALITY!!!!!!!!
