OK here's the delema. I just picked up a new in the box FZ10 for $300.00 from a camera shop that went out of business. Do I keep it or sell it on ebay and take the extra money to buy the FZ20 ? I have been reading a lot of posts with very mixed feelings about the FZ20 and the quality of it's pictures. I am very familiar with the 35mm format but I am brand new to the digital seen. This is my first digital purchase. Is the FZ20 a formidable upgrade or would you stay with the FZ10 ? I realistically could purchase the FZ20 for about $400.00 (after selling the FZ10) of my own money.

All opinions welcome !!

Keep the FZ10, use ISO 50 only and manual mode and stun everyone else with the fantastic photographs you take. For indoor photography use a flash with a rotating head so you can adjust exposure, keeping the camera at 50 ISO, and you will be a happy camper who has saved some money.

It's a great camera and it's going to be nice for many who will now be able to afford it because it's on the discontinued list.

I've owned one for 6 months and don't plan on trading it in.

Keep the FZ10 for now

Wait for the "reviews***" on the FZ20 when it is out.

***reviews = Steve's review plus reviews of FZ20 owners on this forum.

You got a SUPER deal on your FZ10!

Buy a 512 MB Ultra II SD card cheap and you will have lots of photos to share with friends and fam.

Normcar, btw, is a very experienced FZ10 owner so I would give weight to what he says also.

Keep it for now
