I was nearly at point of buying a Panny TZ5 when a friend of mine told me he\nhas just bought the Canon and is raving about it. He had a Panny TZ3 that\nwas stolen and tells me the Canon's pics are far better!!! This has thrown\nme and he is too far away to get my hands on it for a test period. The only\ndrawback is the Canon is only a 35mm lens whereas the Panny TZ5 is 28 mm.\nWould Imiss the 28mm? He went on to say the Canon has more manual control\nbut not sure if am looking for that!!!\n\nConfused desperate for more help?
