Thread: Lumix FZ-what?

  1. #1

    Default Lumix FZ-what?

    urm.... I'm seriously considering a lumix as my next upgrade. I'm still confused as to which one to get. The few in my considerations are:

    FZ-5
    FZ-10
    FZ-20

    I'm not really clear what are the differences between the few. Reading too much reviews is beginning to confuse me. Which has the largest LCD screen by the way? Which has the smallest body? What about most affordable? Thanks all...

    Suggest you remove FZ-10 our of the consideration as the FZ-20 is an upgrade of FZ-10. Between FZ-20 and FZ-5, go to Best Denki at Taka and try them out yourself. They are less than 10 functions different but I suggest that you try holding them to feel the difference in size.
    I chose the FZ-20 for the larger size and hot-shoe over the smaller FZ-5, which has fast focus function. For function wise, go to www.dpreview.com and compare them side by side.

    Hi Edwin,
    Thanks for the reply. I dont need a flash hotshoe. I like to have the smallest possible one. Which is the most affordable? I know Best Genki is very expensive!

    Can go to Cathay Photo at Peninsula Plaza, Alan Photo at Sim Lim Square/ Funan or MS Color at Amg Mo Kio.

    Prices are much more reasonable there.

    Cheers....

    what you're looking for is the fz5 I guess. it's like a mini-fz20 without the flash hotshoe and manual focus ring. it's even smaller than the fz1 i'm using.

    just came out. read about it at CNET Asia minutes ago.
    I like the big LCD screen!

    The FZ-5 is a winner so far, but I dont think I can take the 1.8" LCD screen. My current camera has a 2.5" and I like it so much

    Tested both as well. Got big hands so had problem gripping FZ-5 and went with the FZ-20.

    fz30 is out of my consideration, too much noise even at iso200. the advantages for fz20 are f2.8 throughout the zoom range and bigger ccd. hotshoe is optional, for me it is very useful...
    cheers

    sorry just saw your comment and was curious, are u saying that the fz30 has more noise than the fz20(or even the fz5) at higher iso ranges???

    deciding between the fz-5, fz-20 & fz-30 as well, wondering which one can handle low lighting the best(or the least badly).

    I think you are set on getting FZ5 already...welcome to the club.
    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.
