    Dimage 7 and 5 are now 3 years old - findable in shops and 'net, thoug not
    10x. 10x in good lenses is $$$. Dimage is 28-200 equivalent.

    Really only 'bad' point is slow and sometimes inaccurate auto-focus. Has
    both eyepiece and panel.

    Forget the 'digital' zoom - you can do much better with the algorithms in
    most graphics programs!

    I'm looking for a used one on ebay, camera shops, etc., and would like to
    find out which cameras you fine and friendly folks like.

    The only requirements I have are that I need one with at least 10X optical
    and 3X 'assisted' (30X total) and the ability to manually override the
    automatic shutter speed and aperture settings.

    I'm not interested in Olympus -- I've got a Olympus C700 but it's in need of
    repair ($150) and don't want to put out that kind of money on it. Also have
    a broken 340L. Seems like Olympus digitals have a 2-3 year life.

    I'm very happy with my C725.

    How about the Panasonic FZ1 (2Mpx, 10x) ?

    That would be a challenge. The only decent older camera I know of
    with 10x optical are one of the Sony Mavicia camera and I don't think
    it has digital zoom at all. It also has floppy drive and requires you
    to carry around blank disks or a disk adapter and some memory sticks.
    They are very slow in between picture though due to wiritng the files.

    The other decent camera are Kodak 6490 (4mp, 10x optical) but it's
    fairly recent and not quite old. Also not cheap.
