With the new Lumix Dmc-FZ5 coming out, which one do you think is the better camera- the FZ5 or the older FZ20k. I'm trying to decide which oneto buy, the FZ20 or wait for the FZ5?

Tough call. The FZ-5 is smaller but it loses a 1/2 stop at full zoom. The FZ-20 is larger, and currently Pana's flagship. It also has a hotshoe and manual focus.

Truthfully, I think if the price were the same I would go with the 20 but I do prefer a smaller camera. I might say the opposite tomorrow.

That is a great question, I have been wondering the same thing myself. I hope that once the FZ5 is available, someone will post some identical shots taken with both cameras,at the same location, for comparison.
