I am looking at buying an FZ20 or FZ3 for taking basketball action shots inside high school gyms. I have been using a Pentax SLR with a 300 mm zoom lens with a powerful flash. With this setup I have been able to get good shots from one end of the gym to the other. I need to know how much I will be able to use the 12X zoom without the flash or if I need a more powerful flash? Or should I be looking at another camera!!! :rolleyes:
