It all depends on what you are wanting out of your camera,
Are you wanting a camera that can slip inside your pocket?
Are you wanting one that has a large zoom?
Are you wanting to have a camera that has the use of manual controls if you want to use them to be more creative?
I purchased a Panasonic DMC-FZ28 around 4 months ago, and I have to say it is far and above the best camera I have owned, superb sharp 18x zoom Leica lens, superb anti shake, excellent full auto modes but with the added feature of having manual controls in order to be more creative.
I wrote a review on the Panasonic DMC-FZ28 if your interested. The review can be found here.
