I appriciate that it takes ages to write reviews, but i am shocked that i cant find any at all, i got my FZ20 a while ago, and i havent seen any reviews on it yet (telling me about all the cool features i havent discovered :P)...

No but seriously who are making the reviews for it currently... i cant believe Panasonic arnt pushing for reviews to get some market share.... with the amount they would have had to pay for Leica licencing to use their lens, and they are shit at marketing them !!!

As far as I know, there's still no professional reviews in English......Why?? I dont know....butsome people are sharing their photographs at smugmug.com, you maybe can check the FZ20 performancethrough samples posted there.

Click onwww.smugmug.com and "search" FZ20...

Im still an FZ10 user but maybe next month I could buy the new FZ20

It seems that Panasonic does not provide samples to the reviewers. Panasonic please note!

This from dpreview

"If I had an FZ20, I'd probably review it.

Well if they have only contract for so many lenses and they can't keep the dealers in stock... Also, they may want to make sure that they don't have any early problems (see http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/ca...il.php?cam=506 for the results of that). On the other hand, I'd like to see a review as well. The KM Z3 is at least in a few queue's.

Perhaps Panasonic is so confident with it's Lumix, it does not need review!

there is no way they could be that stupid... Panasonic has a bad reputation for Digital Cameras, and it needs all the help it can get... i mean come on 3% of the market share you tell me one reason why they are confident...

In my opinion it's not that they have a bad reputation, it's that they don't have ANY reputation. :-)

I wasn't even considering a Panasonic for a digital camera until I stumbled upon them while researching the Oly 750 (i think it was the 750UZ).
