Which camera to choose:

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ 3 EG-S or Canon PowerShot A 95

The Leica lens is on the plus side on Panasonic, but I find the Canon neat
in several way:

1) about half the price
2) uses std. batteries.
3) Very good interface to the PC. Can be remoted in several ways from the PC
and pictures can taken and copied directly to the PC (in RAW???).
4) Uses CompactFlash (got a couple of these laying around)

But talking about camera, the main thing is the lens, and what a lens the
Panasonic got... please give me some input to what to choose.

Did read the dpreview.com (actually I was looking for a Sony/Zeiss), but
still, I don't know.

Regards, Lars.

Lars,

I have a bunch of photos taken with my FZ15 if you are interested
http://community.webshots.com/album/229735467FkIHHw. THe FZ15 is the
same as the 20 but without audio and 4 Megapixels instead of 5.

The PowerShot has gotten great reviews as well, it's a tough desition.
I was between the Canon S1 IS and the LUMIX myself. Finally got the
LUMIX for US$386 at butterflyphoto.com mainly because of the lens,
longer zoom and IS. It's heavier though, the barrel of the lens is
metal and the lenses are heavier as well I guess. The S1 IS oddly
doesn't have AF assist light, which is very helpful in low light
conditions.

Regards,
Paiasoloco

That's correct, you cannot control the FZ15 via the computer like if
you would with a webcam for example. Just filecopy.

Yep - but that seems to be it. 3Mpix. More expensive... Not as good review
on dpreview as A95.

But what about the interface with PC. Is it correct that it only does
filecopy - no remote as the A95?

Very broadly - if you want long telephoto zoom, go with the Panasonic.
It's 420mm image stabilised lens will beat anything you can get on the A95
with its longest zoom limited to 114mm.
