Well... I basically replaced my LX-5 and my FZ40 with the ZS20.

Its photo quality may not be as good as the LX-5, but it is way more practical because of its big zoom and pocket size. And the FZ40 basically for the same reason. Why carry a "big" FZ40 when I can have a 20x (at 14MP's) zoom that fits in my pocket? Yes... it doesn't have an EVF but the FZ40 EVF is so smalll that it is practically useless. (I only used when using a lot of zoom). And yes the FZ40 lens is faster (lower F number) but the FZ40 did not fit in my pants pocket like the ZS20.

I hate to keep bringing it up, but a Clearviewer will make your LCD into a very effective [and large] EVF, see here:

I never have it off my camera unless I'm [rarely] using a tripod.

I highly recommend it.
