I hardly believe that is the case here. Have you seen notable evidence of this "shouting down"?

I doubt the FZ70 will ever see a large presence in this forum and I'm beginning to think it won't ever see a large presence in the real world either given Panasonic's rather obscure marketing practices. Too bad really as its no doubt a very good consumer-style bridge cam with a diverse repertoire.

I'm with you, Holmes. I'm not seeing a large chunk of Canon superzoom sales going over to Panasonic because Panasonic simply WIMPS OUT when it comes to thoughtful, creative, and dynamic marketing.

If Panasonic would have its FZ model side by side in all of the physical stores in which Canon has a presence with its SX model, then it would be a good shootout when it comes time for a purchase. Until then, Panasonic loses.
