    I've been a fan of Fuji for some time, my current camera is a Fuji
    4700 Zoom.

    But, I want to upgrade to a new camera, to be used in a growing
    interest in landscape/seascape photography. I want some manual
    controls for experimenting with pictures. I also want to be able take
    those holiday snaps!!

    I have had a good look at the Fuji S7000 - which seems to have all the
    features I'm looking for. However, I've been looking at alternatives
    and wanted to know what the NG thought of the Panasonic Lumix

    Many thanks

    If you're getting serious, time to get dSLR. If you need to choose
    between S7000 and FZ20, FZ 20 has anti shake optics. I have one.
    It does make difference.

    For landscape photography wouldn't a tripod make more of a
    difference? And on a tripod, antishake reduction isn't desirable.
    While a DSLR with a decent lens would be a step up, both the Fuji
    and Panasonic can take seriously good pictures. Depending on the
    photographer's needs it may be insufficient, just as a DSLR may not
    meet other photographer's needs. Then it's time to consider MF and
    LF and also consult a financial advisor. :)
