I'm looking for a second camera for when I dont want to lug my canon slr-which is alot of the time! I assumed I could pick up the older FZ5 for a good price since the newer FZ7 came out. Not true- actually I can find the FZ7 for $329.00 and in black, where the FZ5 is $349.00 in silver. Not that color has anything to do with the cameras ability I just prefer black.

Can anyone tell me why the newer model is less $

good question. I was wondering the same. I think it's just that with dropping prices, the FZ7 was introduced at a lower price point than its predecessors, and the FZ5 price has not been adjusted downward.
