I've been looking at those, and if I were to buy a new camera today, and it wasn't a Nikon. The Lumix line would be it. Especially, with the ability to change out lenses. All the photog mags have been rating them pretty high. Especially, if you don't want a big DSLR body to be packing around, and you like the ease of a point and shot body. Got to admit, I get tired of packing my big bulky camera sometimes.
