    I am planning to upgrade my Canon A20 to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20.
    5 megs pixels and a whoppping 12X optical zoom at less than $600. It
    has Leica lens and good reviews from Steve's Camera's. Any opinion
    from users and experts will be appreciated.

    It's a great camera. My friend has it and mine just came on wed.( I got it
    for $494 at All the reviews I read said that the
    camera is very good and I think they are right. The only downside if you
    call it that is the camera only comes with a 16mb card.

    Everything I've heard about the FZ20 is VERY favorable and I will probably
    get one this week; here in Canada it will be C$800 + 7% tax and then I plan
    to get a 1Gb SD card ("brand name") also.

    I bought the Canon EOS 20D but the shutter noise was so bad I could not use
    it for wildlife.

    Hope we both like the Panasonic!!

    It's a piece of junk. Even disposable camera's accidentally dropped in water
    make better pictures after drying.

    Plonker, I just now (July 28) buy one and so far it seems fantastic! Bet you
    were unfortunate enough to wind up with a "lemon." Maybe you can take it
    back? (assuming you did buy one)
