This is no FZ30/50 replacement.

No manual zoom, no fun.

I agree. Everything seems fine except just MANUAL ZOOM!

If only there was a way for them to put the FZ-50's lens and manual controls on it, as you said - that internally zooming lens has to rate among the greatest ever put on a non-DSLR. It takes normal-sized filters. The front element doesn't rotate, so a polarizer doesn't keep losing 'phase' as you zoom or focus. Bystanders don't see the camera lens zooming in and out and start trying to figure out what you're shooting.

Bet they could build a properly scaled version of this lens for one of their smaller FZ's, and at reasonably low cost too. That would be the turning point for buying a new camera for me, quite possibly.
