I think you will find the Panasonic is a lot cheaper than the Nikon and the Nikon does not have sufficient advantages to justify the extra cost. I wish you well in whatever decision you come to.

Hi rio, welcome on-board! I've not tested the P90 yet, so can't comment - sorry! Do also consider the Canon SX10 IS - I've compared them closely in my reviews of the SX10 IS and FZ28...

Hello rio!

12 Mp and 24x optical zoom sounds good on paper but ... reality strikes back. :twisted:

Nikon P90 1x optical zoom:

Panasonic FZ28 1x optical zoom:

Nikon P90 24x Optical zoom:

Panasonic FZ28 18x optical zoom:

The Panasonic FZ28 lens is better, producing sharper images with less chromatic aberration. Nikon P90 pictures are - to my eyes - noisy and undetailed considering it's a 12Mp camera. From what I've read, Nikon P90 can only record video in VGA and optical zoom can't be used when recording. Nikon P90 ISO 800 (and beyond) performance isn't very good.

Nikon P90 ISO 800:

Panasonic FZ28 ISO 800:

I would recommend the Panasonic FZ28 over Nikon P90 based on these pictures. I love the Panasonic FZ28, it's a great camera. So is Canon SX10 IS.
Hopefully Gordon Laing will be able to review the P90 and the 26x optical zoom OLYMPUS SP-590 UZ soon enough. :!:

Edit: Correction!

Nikon P90 is better than I first thought: ... 10197.html

Panasonic FZ28 or the Nikon P90, yeah that's the question?!
Keeping my Panasonic FZ28. When it dies on me I'll stop take photos, I'm not very good at it anyway.
