Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera
I shoot mainly surfing and nature photos and am thinking at last of buying a digital camera (enough wasted prints!); from readings on this site seems like the fz20 is the best of its range... I would like to know at full zoom(432mm) if the autofocus will be fast enough for surfing photos ? And what about a teleconverter, which kind would you recommend for my purposes, aint there to much quality loss ? (as with my 300mm + ring on my nikon f65 !)

Depending on the break, the FZ20 may be enough. But it's a tough sport to photograph from shore. That said, there isn't a comperable non dslr digital. For the best shots, I personally don't think 432mm is enough unless the break is close to shore. The tele-extenders would help and there are plenty of threads here about them and their quality. Most have had good luck. I assume you'd be using a tripod. IS can't handle handheld shots with more than the standard lens IMHO. A fluid head is very helpful for the necessary panning shots of surfing.
