I have been reading some reviews that explain this camera has a lot of noise in its photographs in comparison to a Canon Powershot g6. Can anyone tell me if the noise is really such a huge problem. I plan on only going as high as 8x10 with my photos and most of the time 4x5. Is noise an issue I should be worrying about?

You would see noise in an 8 X 10 only if you had to shoot at high ISO or maybe if you have to crop a lot. The stabilization generally lets you shoot at lower ISO than with cameras without it except for subject movement. The G6 is a better camera for capturing movement in limited light without a flash because of the faster lens and better noise at higher ISO. Of course you don't have the telephoto range and the FZ20 is actually a little faster than the G6 zoomed out. The G6 still has the ability to shoot at higher ISO with less noise though.
