Close up and inside flash pics are as good as the 20 for me(Just Learning) ,but metering outside landscape with sun and shade is tricky.I'm still trying to fiqure it out.It's not the camera it's me.The FZ20 was more forgiving.

Can't imagine how must it be!!!

You say thet FZ20 was more forgiving, andI know that, playing a bit with metering point/spot you can succeed in preserving both some shadows details and avoid burning HL.

Yet I consider feeble Dynamic range capability the worst point of FZ20 (more than color casts and noise, which are somewhat easier to recover/"heal" in Photoshop).

But I figure out that, as it is with image quality (VS mid range compact cams), the ultra zooms suffer much more in landscape scenes with both heavy shadows and very bright lights owing to their big lens...

With a middle light metering (see a DPRev post of a week ago) you can recover detail in Underexp. areas.

Also note that in extreme conditions, also good dSLR suffer a lot

Just a guess but tryto forget how you did it with the FZ20.

The 2 cameras really work differently or at least I think they do.

I really find the FZ30 much more forgiving for me.
