Thanks for the replies Mark -
Firstly, and probably most importantly... the release date.
Just rang Panasonic UK and they have no updates on the release. Still saying it's June, and the guy said if it's June, it will probably be middle to end!
I have managed to secure a couple of offers on Cameras for my Holidays should the need arise .... My neighbour has just ordered the Fuji HS10? New out apparently but "supposedly" well spec'd and says I can run it in for him, or one of the girls at work has a Canon 350 - so I'm seriously thinking of holding out.
I'm liking the sound, and advantages of the 20mm pancake.. bit pricey, but it could go down on my Xmas list I guess!
Thanks again Mark
