I have been owning an FS3 since 2008. Have been more than pleased with it's results.  But now, i am thinking of upgrading to a bridge camera.  My favourites are Pana FZ48 and Nikon L810.  The FZ48 got's all I ask for except that it uses a li-ion rechargeable battery. whilst the L810 has just 4 secs exposure time, which is bad for night shots and also a slow 1/1500sec shutter speed. Still have to see what Canon has on offer for this year.
