    But on this sub forum there have been posts that ppl have managed to get the eastgear batts at only $23... friggin cheap IMO, but not sure of the validity of the claims.

    Actually the issue is less of lubricating the LCD. It's when your thumb reaches for the buttons to change the exposure settings.. It will jab your face/ eye. =p

    AP is selling at $25 and East Gear one is about $35 but someone mentioned can get at $27. Personally, I find the East Gear one better.

    Actually the extended warranty quite subjective and it is non-transferable. So if you are getting it as a gift for someone, don't bother with the extended warranty.

    If you hold your FZ20 for the next 3 years, it is a bonus.

    Personally I felt the Original is ok. For East gear and AP, I vote for East Gear. Somehow or rather, I felt East Gear one is able to hold charge better than AP one.

    You can go to CP and get the Tokina one. If you use Phayee adaptor which is 62mm, it will be much cheaper. I manage to get 1 x 62mm UV filter for $10.
