Squirl,

It looks to me like the FZ7 really likes you! You may just have to add another member to your camera family. :G

Just curious, how do you think the 7 compares to your 20?

Squirrl,

that's a beautiful sunset, no matter how you slice it.

in terms of image quality, i think it's comparable, but notbetter. it's noisy in low light,perhaps a tad more thanthe '20, because it packs more pixels on the same size sensor, but that's easily cleaned up for the most part. the images are larger, which allows a bit more for cropping, but the difference in resolution wouldn't be noticeable in a print... it takes more than a 20% increase in pixel count to really make a visible difference in print quality. as far as handling, it's much the same, except so small and light it feels like a toy!as an upgrade from an FZ1, it's a great camera. would i get one to complement the '20? nah. nothing i could do with it that i can't do with the '20,so why spend the money? i don't collect cameras the way some folks do... i buy only what i need to do what i want. if i can do it all with two cameras, i have no need for 3, and since i have the FZ20, there's no need for another FZ in my bag.

Make sense to me. Maybe a TZ1, for covert operations??
