I have 7 questions about Panasonic DMC-FZ5 and Casio EX P-505

1st: I would like to know if any of the two camera mentioned (Casio P505/Panasonic FZ5) are able to do Wide-angle functions. It allows taking panoramic shots, which camera can do this?

2nd: Which camera is Faster (meaning more light can come in per second). How do you look at the shutter. Is the min shutter slower the better?

3rd: I have heard from owners of the Casio EX P-505 that there is no continues drive, so from shot to shot it needs 2-3 seconds. Is this true? Does the Panasonic suffer the same fate? How many shots can you take for the Panansonic FZ5 continuously?

4th: Is it important to have a viewfinder? Since LCD can be difficult to use outdoors. Is there such thing as a true daylight visible LCD yet.

5th: Does the Panansonic FZ5 have pre-programmed scene modes. If Yes, how many pre-programmed scene modes they have?

6th: Is the Flash of the Casio weak? Is the Panasonic Flash powerful enough that it does not requires a hotshoe and also does the panasonic have a flash assist like the Casio?

7th: Lastly, tell me in your own plain words, Which digital camera is better? I mean, Which would you all say you prefer?

P.S.: I have Developed photos from DCRESOURCE samples. Both are comparable except that the Casio seems more... eh, saturated(Colourful). The Panasonic also produced great colours too!
