Excellent review. Probably the most inclusive yet. From the conclusion:

"Aside from the boosted resolution in this year's model, the new Panasonic FZ5 offers significant improvements in shutter lag, minor boosts in cycle time, and a larger rear-panel LCD, a welcome addition. To my mind, the dramatic improvements in shutter lag in its "high speed autofocus" modes is the biggest news, as it makes the FZ5 a truly excellent camera for shooting sports and other fast-breaking action (like active toddlers or older kids at play)."

Just finished reading it - very thorough and the cam came out on top in his opinion too.

Probably the best review I have read, well written.
What is interesting is his optical resolution tests show the
FZ5 near on par with the FZ20 with its ED glass.
