Three pictures for the price of one! Another secret exposed.

I agree that the FZ35 may be the best of those pictures but since photography is not a competitive sport for most of us, the FZ100 looks pretty good to me.

I've ridden out all of the negative comments on DP Review about the FZ100 and concluded that I will be buying one unless the Canon long zoom offering blows it out of the water.

I will keep my FZ35, reserving it mostly for 100% enlargements of bugs, spiders, grasshoppers and dragonflies. The FZ100 will earn it's keep by catching kids sliding into home plate, kicking soccer balls and just being kids. With that long zoom, the distant Yellowstone critters will be at my mercy! Watch out bears and wolves,....

Personally, I'm glad we have so many good choices in cameras!

I've been reading right along with you Jack. It sounds like the FZ100 is right for your needs. Too bad they couldn't put both chips in the same camera. One for stills and one for video.

Clint,....my doubts peaked about the time you returned your FZ100. I've since sorted it all out in my own mind and think it will work for me.

These cameras sort of remind me of jet fighters. Pilots love to argue about which one is the best. The truth is, some are a lot more fun to fly than others and some do certain things much better than others do. They've never built a plane that could do it all.

I do think that a camera with "good" picture quality, speed options, long zoom and good video, all in one package like several FZ models, is quite an accomplishment.

The beauty of art (whether it is music, painting, sculpture, photography,...) is that it's always a matter of personal preference. There is no right or wrong, good or bad, pretty or ugly,...as long as it appeals to the eye of the beholder, it's all that matters. So, when it comes to photographic equipment, as long as you are happy with the results from the camera of your choice, anything else is irrelevant.

Is that a 2x crop or a 2x tc on the e620 and the 70-300mm lens to give it the 1200mm eq? So if the 1200mm eq on the e620 was a pp crop. That just invalidated the whole comparison. Punching through the air and haze with a tc is always better then a pp 2x crop. As you do put more pixel on the target.

The other question that needs to be asked is what is the aperture setting for each shot.
