I've read the reviews for both cameras and they seem pretty good to me. Both cameras match up the number of megapixels although S3 has a lower max ISO of 800 while fz-7 can go up to ISO 1600.
I'm quite a noob in this field. I have NO budget for a dslr so I would like a proconsumer that allows me to have max control over the functions and settings. I'm also looking at the possibilities of optional accessories like tele-convertor and wide angle lens which I know are available. I'm crazy over fisheye lens and I'm also wondering if there're any third party fisheye lens for either of these cameras.
I also know that Panasonic's predecessors (fz-5,fz-20 &fz-30) has a problem with the high noise.
So which shld I go for? the Canon s3 or the Panasonic FZ-7? Lemme know ur views and ur reasons for that choice.
Thank you so much~!
