do i buy the fz50 ?

ok i have the kodak Z612 at the moment, and i want to take the next step up. i have been looking over the panasonic fz50. its 10.1 pix, shoots in raw/tiff/jpeg. has a 12x zoom and a hot shoe for flash. might help with my slave studio flash units. also has a remote control option to. it sounds like its got more than i need. should i go for it and ditch the kodak. what do you all think on the matter.

If you want to stick with bridge cameras then the Pano is far better than the Kodak. If a move to DSLR is possible then j sotelo's advice is worth considering.

Thumbs up Re: do i buy the fz50 ?

I've purchased the fz-50 and I am most pleased with its construction, capability, and image quality. I'm a small time semi-pro so I don't put food on the with this instrument. However, the products from this camera so far have been fantastically marketable. I purchased this camera last year, november I think, and at that time I wasn't satisfied with the DSLR market selection . I find myself in rough environments (lots of dirt and dust). To date the Canon Mark 3 and the brand new Olympus line has caught my attention. I'll have to wait a while for my pocket book to blossum, but for now, I don't feel the least bit handycapped with my arsenal.
