Comparing the Canon PowerShot S2 IS, Kodak EasyShare Z7590,
Konica Minolta DiMage Z5, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 and
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H1, the FZ5 came out on top.

The full article may be found at

but you may need to be a subscriber. The relevant conclusion is

"...If you have been keeping score, you know that the winner of my superzoom challenge was the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5. While it has a few shortcomings, they are offset by a simple design and consistently high performance. The Canon and Sony were worthy competitors, and deserve silver and bronze medals. As for the other two bulldogs, I'm reminded of the saying: if you can't run with the big dogs, don't bark when they go by."

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: FZ5
