Couldn't agree more. I stayed away from the FZ30 because they tweaked the sensor to 8mp when they shouldn't have done - it's cos idiots only look at the megapixels when they buy cameras. The result is extra noise at higher ISO settings - much like grain on normal film. The FZ50 is much better and the controls really are so much better. You can prob get £180ish for your camera anyway so it will cost you only £80!!!
This is the bloke I bought it from - awesome service!!!
Apparently you pay any taxes due to the courier.......
