What is best ~ FZ 18 vs FZ 50
It's always nice to have an extra battery. When I had the FZ18 it used the same battery as the FZ50 so I had a spare. Now that the FZ18 is sold I just have the one battery but have very been happy with how long I can go on a charge. You'll love the FZ50 in good light. The lens is spectacular! But on a cloudy day I resort to my DSLR.
