My new camera's "On its way!"
Sonnie pie ordered the Panasonic FZ150, 4 new chips, 2 extra batteries, 3-4 snap-screw? on magnifying lenz (Gee they look awful thin) a clear protective lenz cover, and even a set of two different filters to play around with.

Congrats hava! I'm glad you settled on the Panasonic. I love mine. I don't know what the 3-4 snap screw is ??? but what the hey, there's a lot I don't know about photography. Sage says she doen't use the hood but I use mine all the time. I think it reduces flare in bright sun. It's not great for macros though but I'm usually too lazy to take it off. Also it gives me a sense of security about banging the lens into something. The lens cap doesn't fit too snugly if you use it though.

Let me know how you like it and have fun!!!!

Thank you all!
I bet you thought I'd never get around to making the switch.
It will be a long hill to climb learning its controls before it begins to once again feel like a part of me but It'll come.

I pulled in a few of your shots to show my son the cameras capabilities. Your photos look REAL nice and rich!
It's not a 3-4 snap screw ....... What I was trying to say was.... I wasn't sure if the 3-4 magnifying lens snapped or screwed on.

My computer wasn't connecting to google yesterday otherwise I would have added the links.
I thought $20:00 was a real reasonable price to pay for all the fun I'd have playing around with the extras.
I've always wanted to try the various filters but my camera wasn't able to accept them.

Here's the 1, 2, 4, 10 Close-Up Macro Filter Set.
Amazon.com: Digital Concepts 1 2 4 10 Close-Up Macro Filter Set with Pouch (58mm): Electronics

And the 3-piece Filter Set (UV, Fluorescent, Polarizer)
Amazon.com: 52mm High Resolution 3-piece Filter Set (UV, Fluorescent, Polarizer) For The Nikon D5000, D5100, D3000, D3100, D700, D7000 Digital SLR Cameras Which Have Any Of These (24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 55mm, 85mm, 105mm) Nikon Lenses: Electronics

AND to top things off...My son ordered it all through W.G.s link to amazon.
