I know the Z2 is only recently out, but it looks good, fixes a few Z1 problems, 4mp is probably enough for me, and 10x zoom sounds great Other options, considering its £260ish online? Olympus C750 or HP 945 are both similaly priced. The c750 is a little older tho looks a competent camera the Z2 seems to be quicker in use and does much better movie functions. The 945 is bigger and heavier than both, and I dont trust HP to make a decent camera, although the 945 is supposed to be a step forward for them. I want decent zoom, 4mp + , a good level of manual control of functions, and not an DSLR pricetag lol. Any other options worth looking at?
