    That's why I always ask people what they compare against. Alot of people dont know what they're talking about when they say panasonic noise is bad.
    It's like the frog at the bottom of the well, saying the sky is so small.

    Thanks!!!
    Got one from CP last week. About the same price and accessroies (or lack of). Don't think you can find a better deal at this time. The camera is too new. If you need/want it, get it now. I don't expect the price to drop significantly any time soon.

    FZ7 uses what type of battery? Those that have to keep charging one or the AA type?

    HI armadillo

    thanks for your reply. You yourself gotten the FZ7 as well?
    Seems I'm not the only one who is in big dilemma between FZ7 and canon S3.

    yeap, got it last week, so far quite happy with the result.
    Never use S2 or S3 before, so can't really comment on that

    Oh few things I like on FZ7 compare to S3 physically:
    1. FZ7 smaller and lighter
    2. FZ7 have AR 3:2, S3 only 4:3 or 16:9

    another thing, FZ7 using proprietary battery but S3 using AA, I guess it's depend, for me proprietary seem lighter, and if you get 3rd party CGR-S006 only cost you $30

    Just got my OEM battery from AP yesterday for $25. Size is exactly the same but ratings at the back is slightly different. Should I be worried about the voltage difference?

    Original: Panasonic CGR-S006E 7.2V 710mAh (made in Japan)
    OEM: CGA-S006E 7.4V 1500mAh (also made in Japan)

    if i can recall from a dpreview forum, you can actually use the FZ5 battery on the Fz7, with the help of some sponge of course
