I lost my Nikon eyepiece (hasn't everyone, almost, at one time or another?) and found the largest photo store in Kyoto. The only bargain in Japan was the $4 replacement. I thought some Fluzi-fans might enjoy seeing how Panasonic markets them in Japan: Free-standing, eye-catching, point-of-sale kiosk, loaded with thick, glossy brochures; apparently very successful there. First week of August and no sign of new models, though. By the way, the FZ10 was selling for roughly $575!
