FZ2 is a 2MP while C750 is a 4MP. Were you comparing at 100% or fit to screen view? Under very good lighting, you can hardly beat the FZ's Leica lens.

I agree on this absolutely! Menu system and buttons design of the FZ are the best - easiest and fastest to use. Olympus C series are good too, but Fuji's S5000 is the worst!!!

This one is true too. Once I tried to deplete the battery of FZ1 (cause I read that on the first few cycle of a new lithium ion battery, you need to run it flat before charging to achieve its maximum capacity). I took a lot of blind shots with flash non-stop, recorded movies, played them, on the LCD for long time... Finally I gave up and just did a top-up charge. The battery was just like never die.

FZ's shot to shot time is real fast too. S5000's zoom is as fast and silent but not Olympus C series.

I also like lithium ion battery more cause they're truely memory effect free.

you can also use 2 seconds timer to steady your hand.
