Re: Anyone switch from Canon to Panasonic?

I recently went for a NEW Canon S5IS to a nice used FZ30. For me, the Panny is every bit as sharp and maybe sharper, and has my favorite features, the manual zoom and MF on barrel ala DSLR lenses. I formerly did have a FZ30 when it first came out, but gave it up for whatever was getting bigger "sharpness" raves at the time. Big mistake. I have a decent DSLR ensemble, but find myself grabbing for the FZ30 a lot more than for the "gear" lately. I see no reason for me to look around for anything else at this time. My FZ30 truely ROCKS.
