    Wow, you have both? Both of the camera can last you a long time, so its all up to your personal "feel", which one suits you better? For your 2nd question, just read up more on the camera basics, esp on aperture and you will know why, too long to explain here.

    To be blunt and frank, you need to upgrade your knowledge instead of focusing (pardon the pun) on which camera is better.

    From your questions, it appears you lack basic knowledge.

    DOF is Depth of Field . . .

    which is controlled by changing the Aperture in your setting . . .

    Read the link or google and you will learn it . . .
    Shot more cos digital is FREE !!!

    I think it's more DOF problem. He said blur in certain areas, so I'm assuming it's sharp in others.


    TS (Jeffrey11), it doesn't matter whether auto-focus using whatever NASA advanced algorithm... as long as the DOF is insufficient to cover all the objects in your frame, you won't be able to get all of them sharp in one exposure.

    Hi, Keep both cams because they are still new and play with them with the manuals to learn more till mid next year. Then you can consider new cams to buy.

    I see more and more newbie users buy first read up later. tsk..tsk...tsk.

    Even with advancement in features and technology you cannot skip the basics in photography even if you only dare to use AUTO mode all the time.

    You should at least read up on those basics before buying one. That is the only way to judge whether getting a DSLR is really what you want or a prosumer cam like Panasonic FZ100 is what you actually need.

    The cost of a DSLR setup isn't deterring buyers nowadays. If you look at the future, later on, buying high-end lenses,flash,tripod etc,etc.....it's still an expensive hobby.

    Not to mention how technical it's still is.

    Remember all would-be DSLR owners or you'll end up selling them in a month's time.
