bah only thing that impressed me was the size of the LCD. i just got my FZ20 two days ago and i'm loving it, dont think i'd trade it for the Sony if i had the chance.

partially because i dislike sony in general:lol:

Thank you... I thought it was, but it's also probably true.

Actually, Sony isn't even bothering to call it a Zeiss lens. It's just called a Sony lens. I guess Zeiss got zapped.

Wow... guess the buying public doesn't care about the Zeiss name, and pro-photogs aren't falling for it. Still, this lens loses virtually a whole stop at full zoom. Not good.

I see no advantage what-so-ever, including price, over the FZ-20 or the FZ-5.

Fred I spotted that as well no Carl Ziess lens - I wonder if someone will do little carl-ziess stickers for the new sony ?

On another note I spotted a Leica SUMMICRON lens (its the same as the one on the Pana/Leica LC1/Digilux 2.0) for sale in town last week and nearly fell over when I saw the price for it - I think it was £1200 (approx $2000) and it may have been second hand as well!

Well! I think I better get my fz1 Leica lens appraised and let my insurance company know about this. Wont be able to sleep well until that's done. Thanks for the heads up, Harj.:G

not surprised I think these are considered the best lenses ever made for 35mm cams.
part of the Leica M3 4 5 6 range
I think an M6 would cost 10x an FZ20 with lens.

Never mind I am happy with my Pana LUMMICRON FZ1v2 besides it's edible you can't eat an M6 its price would give you indigestion.
