needforspeed009: Sounds good, if they would only make a version with a manual zoom and focus ring I would definitely buy it.
I totally second that. I will not give up my trusty Konica Minolta A200 (with a manual zoom ring and a completely manual zoom mechanism) until somebody puts it on a superzoom that works better than my K-M. I LOVE this Panny FZ150 . . . all we need is manual zoom and I'm on it!
