Wow. Nice one. Makes onself want to gout and get away to get some coo, fresh air.

Well, shows that it depends more on the subject and the one taking the pic, than on the Equipment used.

Cheers,

Embarassing beauty.
I d like to se one from the 30Dtoo.

Did you use a tripod for the FZ20 shots?
Reading the exif you are shooting at 1/125 and 1/100, so you have a very dark (i.e. high factor) polarizer on your FZ20.
And above all as you know F/2,8 - 3,3 are not the purest apertures.
A tripod and F/5,6 - 8 would have perhaps done even better, if possible...

These are really beautiful. The FZ20 handles well.

To me, the FZ20's #3 looks just a tad bit sharper. What do you think Rocky?

There seems to be a difference in zoom between the FZ-20 shot and the 30D. Both are very good. The 30D seems to have a slight edge in color depth, but FZ is sharp and vibrant also. It is a close one to me, guess I really don't have the eye to critique, as some of the more experienced ones. Just my opinion. With the quality of your FZ-20, I would be hard pressed to go for a DSLR.

you're right, Don. Canon decided that most photographers would rather select the level of sharpening in PP, so they chose to use very little in-camera sharpening, and their images tend to be softer than most other cameras, even other DSLRs. the FZ images are a bit sharper, the more so because i usually keep the in-camera sharpening turned up a bit. i could easily sharpen the 30D images to the same degree, and i may do so for printing, but for the moment, i've left them as they were.
