Will I be happy with it? I finally saw an fz5 when I was in Texas for 4th of July. It was a little out of my budget. I do like the black better than silver I am not interested in video at all from a camera, so I'm ok with the fz4 not having sound.

I am interested in picture quality and zoom! Most of my pictures are taken outdoors. WIll I be happy with the fz4? 4mp should be fine for me. I do lots of traveling so I think the size is fine.



Thanks!

Bridget

Unless you plan to blow up your pictures to a really large size above 12X16 you'll be fine. Before I bought my FZ20 I had a portion of a test picture blown up to the equivalent of a 20X30 print,with still acceptable grain. 4 megs is not that much less. If you're not planning on using an external flash, (no hot shoe) I think you'll be delighted with the camera.A plus is that the 4 meg chip tends to be less noisy than the 5.

Thank you Hiroshi! That's the answer I was hoping for
