Oddly enough, the answer to your question is no. Whilst Canon and anyone invested in them may wish to see them steal Panasonics moment of glory; not owning shares in either of them, their little games of one-upmanship matter little to me, except of course the delight of having 2 new cameras to evaluate on their strengths and weaknesses as potential future purchases.

Canon are very good at crippling their camera features to protect higher priced models, and tend to cost more than some feel they're worth; at least on initial release. It's just as likely then that Panasonic will steal some of their thunder by offering more features at a cheaper price.

Couldn't agree more with everything you say. We, the consumers are in a win-win, no matter how they execute. I hope that both cameras are great and the hardest decision we have to make is which one to spend our money on!

I put it at about twenty per cent over.
