Hi all,

I would like to ask for opinions on which is generally a good quality, value for money brand for a 3-4mega pixel digital camera:

1) Sony
2) Panasonic Lumix
3) Olympus
4) Canon A-series
5) Nikon Coolpix series

My personal budget is less than $500.

I am quite interested in a Panasonic Lumix FZ series with 10X optical zoom (about $500+) but wonder if it's a good brand for cameras... maybe i am tempted by the leica lens...
