Having owned and sold an FZ20, I'm on the verge of buying a FZ30 and would like to ask anyone who has owned both if the noise levels on both cameras are actually about the same. I've read a lot of opinions, but I'm not sure if actual experience with the 2 cameras has actually been involved. I loved the FZ20 and the noise never bothered me at all.

It will not bother you with the FZ30 then as they are very similar and I think the FZ30 handles noise better than the FZ20.

It seems to look worse on the original 100% image because the image is a lot larger but in prints or viewed full screen on a monitor the FZ30 pictures are relatively noise free.

At least as good as the FZ20. and I have a FZ10..20..and 30

Yes I am a fan because they are the first camera that ever allowed me to take reasonably good photos consistently.

I had the FZ10 and 20 as his and hers cameras .. and then I got the FZ30 because it seemed to include everything I wish the 20 would have had.

My wife is going to pick either the FZ10 or 20 and the other is going to my daughter.

I want my wife to pick the 20 but she is partial to the FZ10 as its the first camera she could use.

It does not matter much as they are very similar.
