We do not know how big the quality problem of canon is.
They sell a lot of cameras.....
But we know how they handle customers which have problems:
they have "senior members" which deny any problems and I had to pay twice:
1. six weeks without a camera on my holiday
2. 70€ to fix the replaced camera after 1 1/2 year.

I have never read of quality problems with panasonic, just some SD cards will not work.
Hope you find the right decision!

I am not sure I would call Canon cameras unreliable... but the FZ20 is one fine camera.

I have taken lots of photos as I have lots of time on my hands nowadays.

(I took 50 gbs worth on my recent vacation)

And I have had no problems with either a FZ20 or the FZ10, I am sure there could be a problem with some cameras but Panasonics quality control seems to be very good.

That may be one reason they do not post upgrades to the cameras, thereare no problems that require fixes. ( not too sure about the EVF,but they claim that can not be changed with firmware)

Also I have 8 different SD cards and I have no problem with any of them.
