Default Help: Panasonic TZ7 (ZS3) vs FZ28

Hi,
I'm new, from Italy, sorry for my english :-)

I want to upgrade from my old Olympus C720 (compact ultrazoom 8x).

Finally I focused on Panasonic TZ7 (ZS3) or FZ28 (at same price)

My needs are:

1) fast autofocus, short shutter lag

2) compact size

3) wide range zoom

I'm going to taking photo of pets indoor an outdoor, nature and sports

My question is: ..is the FZ28 significantly faster than the TZ7 to justify larger size?

thank you

marchino-

Welcome to the Foum. We're glad you dropped by.

The Panasonic FZ-28 is the better camera by a wide margin over the TZ-7. The FZ-28 is in a class of cameras higher than the TZ-7.

Have a great day.

The shutter lag is actually LESS on the Panasonic FZ-28 than the TZ-7.
