I thought I had settled on the Z3, but then I saw some low-light image\ncomparisons, and the Z3 came a very poor second. Image resolution seems\nvery similar, even though the Z3 has 4 Mp and the FZ3 only 3.2...?\n\nI have no interest in video or audio, and prefer to take photos under\navailable light. [Is the FZ3's lack of a 'tungsten' white balance\nsetting important? I will be taking photos under tungsten light, as well\nas in other lighting conditions.]\n\nI aim to get as close as I can to my old - and sorely missed! - Olympus\nOM2SP + Tamron 35-135 zoom + optical doubler + dedicated flash. [No: I\nhave no desire to return to big heavy SLRs + film!] N.B. I only ever\nprint 6" x 4" pictures, and view them with the naked eye, so extreme\nresolution is not an issue for me.\n\nI have always found first-hand user opinions much more useful than\n'expert' assessments, so I would value your thoughts, if you would care\nto post them? What are the plus points of either camera, and what are\nthe disadvantages? TIA.\n\nPattern-chaser\n\n"Who cares, wins"
