you're staring at a die-hard fz5 owner here...Originally Posted by lilboytoy
well, if you can afford it, get the s2 with manual focusing. but i heard from a friend that they do not package the lens adaptor together with the box. so if you wanna add anything like at teleconverter or filter you need to purchase it separately. the fz5 has the lens adaptor + hood packaged together.
the only thing i don't really like abou the s2 is the battery, which is AA. aside from that the fz5 is matched to the s2.
but the thing about canon is they have lots of add-ons for their cameras. compacts and prosumers[notwithdstanding dslr, which already have alot] alike. but then again panasonic is gonna roll out new accesories for the prosumer line once the fz7 is out..so im hoping for that...
