    Why don't you google for Alan Photo and Cathay Photo.

    It takes about 1 second.

    Hi!

    I was at the same stage 2 years back when i bought my first digital PnS camera.

    I personally suggest getting a Sony or Canon. Why? Sony uses Carl Zeiss lenses for their PnS which are actually high quality lenses. The lenses produces accurate and vibrant colours. FYI, CS lenses are used in Hasselblad cameras (very high end cameras) which are used by pros to take poster sized advertisements. Sony may be pricey but sony has good reputation.

    Canon for its overall build and quality, i prefer its A series which requires AA batteries. AA batteries are good in a way that you don't have to worry about battery going flat, just bring more rechargables!!!

    Panasonic uses the famous Leica lenses but their sensors are noisy...they have good specs but the noise is rather a put-off for me.

    The rest I haven't really went to do in depth research so I won't comment.

    The above comments are my personal opinion which are said based on my own experiences.

    By the way, i got myself the Sony W5 which I'm still using and very happy with!

    Er, actually, Panasonic has low noise. But it has no details too.

    Before I confuse threadstarter, basically yes, Leica lenses are good, but the sensor and engine in Panasonic, I feel, doesn't do the lens justice. The usual complaint is that the noise reduction in Panny cameras is TOO AGGRESSIVE, causing massive loss of detail, leading to something some people call the watercolour effect, hee hee.

    -If- they offer it I guess, and if you don't mind squeezing with people.. Usually very packed.

    Mostly from what I've see for PnS cameras it isn't attractive price, it's attractive bundle. So the question to be asked is if you *really* need everything in that bundle. =D

    If the buyer is a newbie that doesn't have anything at home. Then the extra things at I.T show is useful.
