I think you need to make up your mind on whether to go for a bridge camera vs a premium compact and then decide on which brand/model you are going to go for.
Why not the XS-1?
You can get it for under 28k from ebay or some other online site.
Edit: Realized after posting that you had already bought it. You should also get a 16gb uhs card. I think the camera with its burst...
They should have gone with contacts instead.
Except that the price drops are rarely reflected in India. For example the FZ200 costs about Rs 28k whereas the LX5 still costs Rs 31k.
imo a better jpeg processing engine with better nr/sharpening and an option for having both manual and motorized zoom (even without any other improvements) would be a worthy upgrade to this...

apologies won't do... i think you should buy an hs30 as punishment.
Entry level DSLR + 50mm f1.8 prime can be had for real cheap especially if you are willing to go for second hand ones and don't mind the added bulk.
Its #371 when i checked your link fwiw. Also, $600 is a super expensive price considering i got it for INR 27k in India especially considering that xs-1 costs 54k here.
I am using C1 for forced flash and I think I'll fill up more custom setting slots as I get more used to the camera. I've also reassigned the fn button to bracketing as I only tend to switch the...
i just find it funny how similar so many of tbaker and joms posts are.
