Overall photographic quality rating: 9.6/10.0 Not too shabby!

Fred

Just read the review - pretty good if you ask me. No mention of the low light/EVF gain up though. On the whole the FZ5 looks very nice.

Looks good. They seem to indicate that the noise is less than the FZ20. Seems to focus faster and from what I've seen may render colors a little better. I like the OIS control and the focus button. That and being black, it looks like a nice little package. It'll be interesting to see what Fred can make it do.

Thanks very much for this link!
An excellent review plus helped me learn a bit more about my own new FZ5.
Much nicer review than the others i have seen so far!

interesting indeed. not enough to make me want to trade in my Z20, but if i didn't already have the '20, i'd certainly consider the Z5!

Not yet, Nick. I dont expect it until April 20-22. Onecall and Ritz are shipping now. I'm hoping Ritz stores might be getting them on the shelves this week so I can take a look while I'm waiting on amazon.
