Personally I'm looking for a replacement for my Olympus C2100UZ to use with teleconverter lenses. The Z1 is a contender along with the Olympus C750 and C730. Panasonic have a new one coming out shortly too with a 12x optical zoom and more MB, but I'm not sure whether it takes add-on lenses.
The new Panasonic does look very good. It may have a filter thread on the lens but I wouldn't advise attaching a heavy teleconverter onto it. The real plus points are the i.s. system and the amazing f2.8 from 38mm-420mm. But is 420mm enough for most birds?
also, if you're particularly bored, try - mediocre aviation photography
