Great pictures from an older quality camera

bookwormreadingbooks, Ebay
8 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought the camera knowing that it was some what old, but it had some features that appealed to me. First, it had Leica lens which were known for their quality and a type of sensor that was highly rated. Finally, it held 2.8 ff lens aperture through all zoom ranges. I felt that even with a meager five point megapixels and a limited eighty to four hundred ISO, it would take wonderful pictures.

Fast apeture thru-out the zoom range gives blurr free results in difficult

ekohnmmri, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this for the lens. Most digital cameras with zoom lens have a much slower aperture (5.6!) at the highest zoom. This camera stays at 2.8 thru-out the zoom range. 5 MP may be low by today's standards, but a 16 MP blurry picture is useless. I take pictures of people, never posed (grabshots) and in not so good light, so I needed a camera that would take the picture with minimum delay and wide open aperture even at the higher zooms.

A great camera!

7927michaell, Ebay

  • Summary: I wrote an earlier review on the FZ 20 which ran for a couple of days and was pulled. Why?. I suspect it was because I contrasted it to the Panasonic FZ7 and the Panasonic FZ18 and chose the 20 for several stated reasons which I will not repeat here. Let it serve that I now own three FZ20s --two black, one silver, and this is my go to camera. It has a great lens, produces excellent photos and has several features missing on the later models.

panasonic fz20 with Leica lens

mikematelot, Ebay
13 January 2011
  • Summary: Great big, whopping, sharp lens. Adequate flexibility in controls. Hotshoe is helpful but demands vari-power flash with low trigger voltage. Not just anything will do. Excellent color quality. Limited ISO's but OIS (stabilization) work fine. Nice pics so far.

Great lens for the price- a bargain

joelturl, Ebay

  • Summary: This camera is now several years old, and so to give it an "excellent" would be inappropriate -- time has passed its features by. However, one can hardly find a less expensive way to obtain a lens of the quality that is here. There used to be a series of ads in the 1950s for a camera which shall go unmentioned, "The lens alone is worth the price." This is precisely why I bought this camera on eBay, and I have not been disappointed.

  • Summary: Purchased as back up to same model. Original showing signs of wear and with all the gear I have for it, if it fails ... I'd have to start from scratch! Besides, I love this camera. And now it's possible to carry two configurations.

Love, Love, Love this camera

dsarhan, Ebay

  • Summary: I've only had the camera for a few weeks now - but I simply love it. It is very easy to use, and most important, takes excellent photos right from the start. Now, I know very little about exposure, lighting, whatever - and I haven't really played with many of the settings - but I was able to zoom in at a swim meet to capture my daughters face while swimming breaststroke - indoors, in a poorly lit area. Got some great team pictures as well.

Best Camera $ for $ I've ever used

quality-brass, Ebay
8 July 2010
  • Summary: I've tried Nikon DSLRs, upgraded Lumix FZ30s and FZ50s and except for the bells and whistles and ergonomic features, I have continued to migrate back to the FZ20s. Once it's set up, I can shoot and go for months without making any changes to it. I know what to do when I get odd colorings, etc. so maybe it's because I've used this model so long but when something works, why change it?
