Okay so I want to purchase a super zoom camera.
After reading different articles I have decided to buy either the Panasonic FZ38 or FZ45.
Even tho FZ45 is newer and has a better specification, the FZ38 gets better reviews!?

Why is this?

There's only about 20 difference in the price, I can only guess that by giving the camera more mega pixels and zoom it has lossed the quality of pics as the sensor? cant cope (well so I read on another forum)

Any advice would be great, I ideally want to use the camera for live sports, football and F1 so any other recommendations would be sweet!

Thanks all
