I want to buy another camera but with more zoom, my options already are:

Panasonic DMC-FZ50

Panasonic DMC-FZ8

Canon S5 IS

I´m searching big zoom, image quality, optical stabilization. Can you help with your opinions.

Another cameras?, Fuji?, Sony?

Thank´s from El Salvador.

MC,

Rather than my opinion (which is that all three are fine cameras) go to this gallery and take a look at the tele test shots from my S5.

http://www.pbase.com/johngalt_ny/s5_testshots

All the wave shots were taken from the 5th floor of a hotel about 200-250 feet from the water.

Sorry I don't have any Panasonics to show you. Lastly, the S5 is the most compact of the three.

Most of the images in these galleries are S5 --particularly Canada, NYC Dawn, and In the Fog.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

JG

Here's a folder of over 500 images I just shot in Paris, France with my Panasonic FZ50 in everything from bright outdoor light to indoor dim light. Combine the ability of the Mega OIS systemwith some good handholding skills (the best stabilization system will be ruined if youdon't holda camera right and somewhat steadily)and static subjects in any light can be shot with the FZ50..
