I have read the first reviews of Nikon P100, and I guess ya, maybe you should wait for some time! There are features, but PLENTY of problems too, the main one being photo quality. There is no RAW support too. Maximum shutter speed is 8 seconds, and it may not be enough if you are interested in night sky photography. There is a LOT of purple fringing at long zooms. Chromatic aberration is TERRIBLE at long zooms. Though you can use zoom while recording videos, you can't use AF. The lowest ISO is 160.
The results above ISO 400 just aren't good for much beyond small prints and Web use.
Colors were not accurate in our tests, particularly reds and blues.
This is all I have, till Gordon's review is out. But from what I read, I would rather be very happy with an FZ35/38 as of now, or wait for the HS10/11. As with Canon's SX20IS, from people reviews, I read some people were disappointed with it.
Hope this helps,
