Hi folks, just registered so hello to you all.

I am currently in the market for a new camera and quite fancy a "compact superzoom".

Have been researching for ages and would like advice on which one to go for.

The favourite at the moment is the Pana FZ38 which I could get for 230.

I have also considered the Nikon P100, Canon SX(?)20IS, various Fuji's and some that I don't think I can stretch to like the Fuji HS10, Pana FZ45 etc.

Can anyone advise if there is a better camera out there than the FZ38 for similar money? Maybe one of the ones I mentioned above is better and you can advise me why....

Thanks everyone.
