S100 FS vs Lumix FZ50
Aug 2, 2009

Now that the price of a S100 FS has dropped to be within my budget, I would first like to ask you users of it for a comparison with the popular FZ50.

As a Wildlife ;photographer you know how useful the 7 fps with 50 shot bursts would be to me. Also, the lesser noise at high ISO. To get these benefits, I am willing to give up my motorized zoom tho it makes for more hands free work in the field. Also, the "instant on" feature of the FZ50 is nice to have.

Question #1 - How much does jpg IQ suffer at the 3 mp needed for this 7 fps/50 shot feature to work?

Question #2 - Do you consider the Fuji lens on a par with the optical quality of the Leica glass on the Panny?

I'll likely be persuaded more by your comments having nothing to do with those two questions.

Thanks, all, in advance.
