I ordered the FZ5 from Onecall.com, and they just called me to let me know that it will be shipping today, I should have it by Wed next week. The reason I did not go with the Fz20 is Size. My wife did not like the size, but was ok with the FZ3 size. So, this seems like the best compromise to me. I have been shopping for a camera for a good long time, and this is the closest to what I have been looking for. If only cameras were like PCs or Notebooks and you could customize the features...

It was the fact that FZ5 is smaller that convinced me to get it too.
While FZ20 has a few extra features most notably the external flash possibility...I felt that I am unlikely to very very rarely be taking pictures with an external flash.
Also the price comes into it - about £100 less!
So for the money I got an extra battery and large card...
I am going on holiday and carrying not only a still camera but also digital camcorder so the fact I got small ones of both makes them fit into one small carry case!
I don't have huge aspirations to become the greates photographer. Just want some great shots when travelling and moving about.
That was my reason for FZ5.
