Looks like dequardo was trolling around and stopped by here instead of his usual Canon forum. Here is his opinion of th FZ
"I would disagree about the FZ3 having 'best pic quality'. S1 IS has that rather handily.":?
Troll? Hardly. These are opinions and my opinion is thus:
For the best color reproduction the S1 IS wins-and yes, hands down. The reddish cast under flash is especially jarring on the FZx's-at least on the FZ3 and FZ20 that I HAVE OWNED. The Canon does come at the expense of overactive noise reduction-as a result-too soft images.
