Regarding the manual focus: That was originally a big selling point to me, but now after having the camera for several weeks, I have really barely used it. The autofocus works quite well and swiftly. A lot better than my previous camera, the Canon Powerhot G5, which fished around a lot for the focal point and often missed it, especially in low light conditions.

To me, the manual focus capability is not a major feature anymore based on my actual usage. And from what I hear the FZ5 has a further improved AF system.

The lack of a hotshoe is a bigger drawback for me. But it's all how you use it.
