Hehe, I know that for most of us, what we have currently are good enough for our needs.

But maybe some of us who are planning on upgrading, or planning to get your very first camera?

Share your thoughts :think:

That's just a rumour right?

Anyway for me I won't sell my current set lar.. if I do upgrade next time it will probably be the DSLR, and I will still keep my FZ30 :)

Looking at the RRP for the FZ50, its quite pricey still.. 650 US?

how i wish lumix contains a fuji super CCD :heart: after seeing the review of f30... the noise beat most of not all of the prosumer camera, and close to cropped dslr...
:cool:

i own FZ20 for almost 2 years and felt the need to upgrade with high ISO sensitivity.

i will wait for a review of this FZ50 and Fujifilm F6500/F6000 fd before i can decide which one i will buy. :)

if you think high ISO is a must, den im sry to say please don look at any of the lumix even those announced... :cry: tho there is a improvement compare to older model, but it far lagging behind other brand of camera like fuji/canon

Maybe it will cost more than that, given that the RRP for the FZ50 is going to be higher than the FZ30 when it first came out. :cry:

hummm. think should save up more to upgrade to dslr.
haha but one thing to take note, using dSLR you will be getting 35-420mm f2.8-3.7 iirc + OIS.
for that combination it gonna cost you a BIGGGG FATTT BOMB. eg Nikon 70-200mm VR (105-300mm) will set you back 2.5k already. :bsmilie:. as for basic setup, i guess to attain that range with moderate quality lens you will have to prepare about 2k for a new set. :sweatsm:
