But I used to get by with my Canon S3 IS quite well - and that had the equivalent of 36-436mm. And the larger sensor in the Oly will make cropping easy if he needs more zoom than 360mm. I suspect, however, that Mark's dad is looking to really lighten the load and go with a megazoom. The Panasonic and Canon are really the best options in that class and he should go with the one he likes best.
The SP590UZ ain't too shabby either.

Thanks all. I passed everything to him and he has decided for a few reasons to stick with the original thought and will get the SX20. One of the main reasons was that it took AA batteries and also he can pinch my flash guns for extra power.

Hi Mark-

That seem like a very reasonable decision. It is great to be able to barrow equipment. I wish him lots of luck with his new Canon SX-20 camera.

Have a great day and a Merry Christmas.
