New Super Zoom. When?

Hello all

I'm keen to get a FZ28 camera for snapping birds but I wanted to know whether to wait for the 24x zoom model. Does anybody know roughly when this will be available?
I may be wrong but I heard somewhere that Panasonic were working on such a model. TIA.

Paul

hi Paul and welcome to BirdForum from all the staff.

I have no idea when the replacement for the FZ28 is due out, but given how popular the camera is I doubt they'll rush it through. There are a couple of other super zooms with bigger zoom ranges but they don't the positive reviews that the Panasonic does, personally I'd forgo some reach for the good of image quality.
