Good thread and advice. I'm surprised Roger, at the lack of crispness with your TZ3 as that is one thing I'm always impressed with, having the same model and producing superb prints at around 15"x10". I did move on to buying a TZ28 and have enjoyed it's additional features immensely, particularly the bigger image size and the RAW facility. I've been considering buying the Canon 550D but every time I go and look at it I shudder at all that extra weight and lens changes/purchases. I miss the ability to shoot using a cable release or the higher tech electronic remote facilities so I'm sure I will succumb one day. For now though I enjoy the pocket sized TZ3 and for more "serious" photography my TZ28 with its greater control over aperture and shutter speed, the ability to shoot close-ups within a centimetre or two, and its superb zoom facility.
