First of all, I'd like to thank Mr Gordon Laing for his wonderfull website and for the quality of his reviews, thank you so much, I'm not an addict to the photography world, and even worst, I do not understand all the things I read about aperture, focal etc...
But I'll try to learn step by step.
I'm going to buy the FZ50, it's not an SLR but for me that's enough quality for the money, I had the opportunity to put my hands on it, and I liked the feel also. My first choice was the LX2 but for the price difference I'll go for a bigger zoom.
The sad thing is, that there seems to be a noise problem with this camera.
How big is it ? Will I noticed that noise with pictures of 10x15 or A4 size ?
I tried this weekend to take pictures in a fair with a compact (Panasonic LS2), but was so disapointed with the result, when zooming in, the quality was degraded and in dim light conditions too.
I hope that with the FZ50, it'll be another story.
By the way, is there an alternative to the FZ50 in the same price range ?
