    is that it's a bigger, scaled-up version of the FZ2
    the FZ1 (which I own) and the newer FZ2. <snip>

    Thanks for that. Grateful to group for a heads-up when any reviews spotted.

    I believe a review of the FZ10 is coming out today on dcresource.com.

    Yes, there is one at www.dpreview.com
    and also a very detailed spec breakdown at
    http://catalog2.panasonic.com.
    Would like to get one in my sweaty hands
    but will probably get it when the price drops
    a little.

    As of tonight there are two reviews of the FZ10 online, steves-digicams and
    dcresource. Steve's IS a review - you have to use the drop down menu or
    "next" link to see the rest. Tthe first page is just a rehash of
    manufacturer's info, but he also describes the various features as you go
    through the pages - you have to read it to find his opinions of the features
    and/or go to "Steve's Conclusion".

    All in all it looks well, but ...
    Isn't there an uncompressed format in the FZ ?
    The specs show only JPEG, which would be quite a limiting factor for
    many users.

    Thanks for the feedback, Hans-Georg.
    I understand every non-pro camera carries some compromise, depending
    on each user's needs. As example, I'm ruling out the FZ10, too big and
    heavy for my needs.

    I wonder how well the FZ2 stands in comparisson. Haven't found much
    opinions neither reviews of it.

    cheers

    My opinion of the FZ2 is that is that it will give the same performance
    as the FZ1. The only difference, as far as I know, is the extra aperture
    and shutter priority modes.

    I did think about waiting for the FZ10 but decided the extra size and
    weight ruled it out for me. With the FZ2 on its strap round my neck I
    can hardly tell I'm carrying it.

    The image stabiliser works very well. I think the only reason someone
    could have for not buying one is if they need manual focus and/or
    more Mpix and/or RAW files.

    But at it's price I think it's a great camera.
