FZ5 gets trumped - slightly. Probably due to S2 features advantage. Hey, nothing wrong with strong competition!

"All-in-all I really like the PowerShot S2 and it gets my highest recommendation. I think the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 is more of a "photographers" camera with its sturdier construction, manual focus ring, and hot shoe, with the S2 being more of an all-around tool for still and video shooting. Close behind are the Panasonic FZ5 and Sony DSC-H1, and neither of these cameras should be overlooked. The best thing to do is get yourself to a camera store and try them all out to see which you prefer. Whichever of those four you choose you'll still end up with a great ultra zoom camera."

I did a quick look at the review...in the night shots it looks noisy at ISO100 and verrrry noisy at ISO200, much more than the FZ.

I just looked at the first pic (city centre dome) and noticed CA, a very visible color shift on the two palm trees and the windows of the building to the right in both the Canon and especially the Sony. I still think that the Leica is going to be a hard lens to beat. JM2C.
