The FZ3 is more compact and 3Mp. It takes excellent 3Mp pictures.

The FZ20 is the more competent overall camera IMO, but you might not use the extra pixels, need the super flash range or want to use an external flash. The camera is very large for a digicam.

If you don't want large blowups for your wall or crop extensively the FZ3 would be a very good camera.

thanx..i just dont want to out grow my camera..i took the fz1v2 to vietnam this summer and it worked really well overall..so i am familiar with its menues..i took it back after vietnam cause i heard a new fz was coming..now i must decide which to get.

i worry as i said that i will outgrow the 3mp but i just want a smaller excellent pic taking camera with decent features and easy to use.

Well, in that case there is no doubt that the FZ3 would fit your requirements. It is a *much* smaller camera than the 20. I think by going with the FZ3 you only give up manual focus. One can always add a slave flash, if more flash power is needed.
