Are you planning to buy the TZ30/ZS20 or TZ25/ZS15?

Re: ZS15 or ZS20 Sensor?
In reply to snapshot09, Mar 5, 2012

I'd be quite surprised if the ZS15 can hold a candle to the ZS3. On http://www.imaging-resource.com , I like to compare the studio shots (still life) @ 1600 ISO, looking at the "PROPORTIONAL SCALE" and counting discernable tick-marks on the outside of the scale. The ZS3 outperforms cameras with 2.0" sensors and even some with 1.7" sensors in this setting.

I just compared the ZS3 and the ZS20. I believe the ZS20 has ALMOST clawed its way back up to Sx230 lens sharpness performance. So we are now three years in the past in terms of Panasonic lens sharpness and high-ISO performance. That's not good enough to compel an upgrade.

It seems like Panasonic has split the image-quality difference (gulf) between the ZS3 and ZS10, and they have called it the ZS20.

I am still waiting for them to post the still lifes for the ZS15 camera.

The ZS20 is just as much as a disappointment as the ZS10 because we thought we would get something close to the ZS3 in performance.
