FZ40/FZ45 or FZ100?
Aug 22, 2010

I've pretty well made my mind up that I'm going to upgrade from my FZ28.

I'm torn between the FZ45 and FZ100. Do I pay extra for the FZ100 is the big question for me.

Is there anywhere yet where I can see FZ45 sample shots? I've seen FZ100 pictures a plenty and these vary from quite good to a little iffy (true of all cameras I reckon).

I'm concerned that there seems a slight drop in sharpness from previous FZ models and a bit more noise (due to trying to cram 14 MP into such a small sensor, especially with a CMOS sensor). Will this be true also of the FZ45's CCD sensor; it's almost as though the CCD sensor strangely seems to tolerate being crammed into a small space.

Puzzling.
