Hi this is my first post.

I have been using 35 mm Canon EOS till now, My wife is into bird watching

and I'm trying to buy her a good camera for that. Buying Canon TeleZoom L series lensesIs way too expensive, so I'm thinking digital now. I was told that quality of pictures is not the same than with film. How true is that?

The little research I did seems to point me towards the Panasonic Lumix DMCFZ20, it has a very good lens 12x zoom with the option of adding a x2 extender wich would bring it up to almost a 900 mm equivalent zoom lens.

If I'm not going to blow up big size pictures, keep them mostly under 8x11 would I notice a big difference in quality compared to reflex systems?

Thanks for your help !!
