Brilliant long zoom camera. Super IQ and body design.
I got both FZ47 and SX40 to chose which one to return after a couple weeks of the trial. I failed to chose ... Well I decided to keep both. I like IQ from both but somehow more like FZ47 overall design better (better, quicker focus too). Only 1 thing I can account on SX40 is better - flip in and out screen. I didn't try FZ150 but FZ47 might have as good or better IQ for much less (due to the same lense/processer). I will give FZ47 strong 5 stars. I still have two FZ30s with fantastic lens on it but FZ47 is my favorite now. I'm so surprised that nobody is talking about this camera on the forum. I bought mine for $182 from Newegg a few months ago. Thanks for reading. Happy Easter.
