If Panasonic don't upgrade the FZ50 in time..

...to meet the eventual demise of my FZ50, it is highly likely I will suffer the motor zoom of a current superzoom and seek out instead a CMOS based camera.

At the moment this means the Sony DSC-HX1.

If I am to lose handling there just has to be something on offer as compensation. The whole CMOS thing, evident just now, sounds like it. I have wished for in camera layered noise reduction with many others on this forum. If Sony gets to deliver it first, so be it.

On how many levels are you hoping to dissapoint in the future Panasonic? Does my liking the LX3 mean that's for the chop also?
