I have checked eBay, and several other sites but sadly they don't make that model anymore and I wont buy it used . So now the question, to buy a new one the next model up?
Or take a bigger financial plunge and get the waterproof shock proof dust proof model
(not buying form this site I found both cheaper elsewhere
fair difference in price, but the dust proof part is a pretty compelling feature, seeing as the camera even in a cover does tend to ride around in my pocket on the farm, and my pockets, are , well, um chore coat pockets.
the waterproof , has less zoom than the new model, but almost as much as my old one 9.3 as opposed to 10X , but the newer model has 20X , so hmmm, in a perfect world I would get both but that might be just greedy.
Am I determined to stick with Lumix? yup, for several reasons, they are great cameras, and unlike a lot of companies the batteries and chargers, connectors and accessories don't seem to change with every upgrade, so I can use some of what I already have to upload photos , and a spare battery is never a bad idea!
Anyhow, while I think about it , you will be subjected to old photos and cell phone pics, and maybe I will drag out the big camera from time to time to get more used to using it .
Till then be well and stay safe my friends
