Lumix TZ7/ZS3 vs Sony DSC-H70
by TunesmithMJB - 6/19/12 6:23 AM
Just seeking some advice. Heading away and looking to make a slight upgrade to my Lumix FS7. Dont want to put in the big bucks for a massive upgrade. I was originally looking at the TZ7 because I found a cheap used deal but that fell through, now ive found these two for similar price and I was wondering if there was advice on which way to go.
Admittedly, the panorama feature is appealing of the sony, but ive done quite a bit of reading/research and the TZ7 seems to have a slightly better rep on the net and may even take better photos. I have read that it has terrible battery and requires a spare as well. Personally I dont have the knowledge but ive been made aware that Leica lens is good (right?) and am unsure if this is a determining factor over the sony. Also the Lumix is obviously a couple of years older, but still seems to be quite a good camera..
Anyway, any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!
(Or recommended similar cameras in this price range)
