Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ 20 EG-S vs. Canon PowerShot A 95

Discussion in 'Panasonic Lumix' started by Lars Bonnesen, Dec 15, 2004.

  1. Which camera to choose:

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ 3 EG-S or Canon PowerShot A 95

    The Leica lens is on the plus side on Panasonic, but I find the Canon neat
    in several way:

    1) about half the price
    2) uses std. batteries.
    3) Very good interface to the PC. Can be remoted in several ways from the PC
    and pictures can taken and copied directly to the PC (in RAW???).
    4) Uses CompactFlash (got a couple of these laying around)

    But talking about camera, the main thing is the lens, and what a lens the
    Panasonic got... please give me some input to what to choose.

    Did read the (actually I was looking for a Sony/Zeiss), but
    still, I don't know.

    Regards, Lars.

    It has what you like about the a95 plus a good telephoto lens.

  5. Yep - but that seems to be it. 3Mpix. More expensive... Not as good review
    on dpreview as A95.

  6. But what about the interface with PC. Is it correct that it only does
    filecopy - no remote as the A95?

  8. Very broadly - if you want long telephoto zoom, go with the Panasonic.
    It's 420mm image stabilised lens will beat anything you can get on the A95
    with its longest zoom limited to 114mm.
