    I'm trying to decide between these two models. The only differences that I

    $$ not being an issue, is the FZ20K the clear winner here?

  2. Slack,

    There's a group specially for this type of SLR-like camera over at:

    and you'll find a few discussions about the FZ20 there. I'll copy your
    question over there and set follow-ups.

    The FZ5 is a considerably lighter camera, and therefore has different
    trade-offs. I guess you will need to compare the images directly -
    assuming the other facilities are identical. Do you need a flash
    hot-shoe, for example? If weight was important to me, I might choose the
    FZ5, as the slightly smaller aperture isn't quite so critical for lower
    light situations when you have the image stabilisation to help you.
