Ok.... so I decided on the Panasonic FZ-20. I was convinced. But then the FZ-5 popped up. So please help.

From my understanding and the few reviews around, the FZ-5 has a smaller LCD, no hot-shoe & no manual focus when compared to the FZ-20. So why isthe FZ-5£100 / $160 cheaper than the FZ-20? (I don't need a hot-shoe, I use the EVF most, I haven't used manual focus since before my Minolta 7000).

If you know please tell me in the most convincing terms as I'll use the answer to convince my wife.

Many thanks

Didn't you answer it yourself? In your own words "FZ-5 has a smaller LCD, no hot-shoe & no manual focus." That's why it's cheaper than the FZ-20.

But how about performance? Specifically low-light focussing ability and shot-to-shot speed (not burst-mode)?

Cheers
