This is an image comparing the top views of the ZS40 vs the ZS30:

The ZS40 is bigger in all dimensions.

Yes, but not by very much.

This image when viewed at full size shows the ZS40 compared with the HX60V at actual sizes:

The body of the ZS40 is less bulky, IMHO.

The ZS40 appears to be the silver version, where did you find the image? I'm considering the silver but only seen black reviews.

I’m not sure where I found that image, but there’s a silver TZ60 shown here in this preliminary review. The shoppanasonic site (here ) lists the ZS40 in the silver version.

Also, the PhotoBlog reviewer ragged incessantly on the smaller front grip, but barely mentioned the new control ring around the 4-way control. For me the small front finger grip is more than adequate.

Also I notice that while the back of the ZS30 is quite flat, the ZS40 has added a raised thumb pad at the rear top RH corner. That looks to be an improvement, from my experience with the ZS30, where a thumb could sometimes rest on a button.
