I know that they are both not exactly similar....the sony can capture 640 movies & 7m/pixels,on the other end the Panas have a great IS and zoom lens.

Why do i compare them ? ,well just because they are all around the same price.

One thing that annoys me is thatthey don`t have AA batteries.....

I believe that all cameras should have such batteries,it`s cheaper and much more practical,don`t understand why they don`t do this ?

The camera that seemed to have it all was the KM Z3 but it has very bad poor light capabilities and the noise is terrible. Low noise is very important to me ,i like to take night pics.

Does anyone have an idea which to choose or maybe another camera ?

There are also other cameras in the same price range


Nikon Coolpix 8400 (after rebate)
Olympus C-7070 Wide Zoom

Both these are 8MP but have a larger sensor size than the G6 or the V3 so theortically the noise should be lower.

Right now the Nikon looks like an excellent deal..

It all depends on what the individual is looking for. Size, weight, quick focusing, quick shutter release, quick return to ready etc. THe FZ5 is quicker and lighter by far.

That`s right by far and not forgetting the super lens and IS.

The reviews of the panasonic FZ-5 are finally out...the one from Steve`s will surely be as impressive as the other ones.

I`ve finally made my decision about which bridge to by...it will be a FZ-5.... i wanted a small camera with a super zoom and good sharp pics. The only things it lacks for me is :

- no AA batteries

- video only in 320 and not 640.

I`ll be sending pics immediately when i purchase it...see you all soon.
