FZ60 requests
Jun 1, 2009

Like Ehrik in the 'panny monitoring' thread I also had a similar email with specific mention of the FZ50 replacement in paragraph 3 see below:

"3. As has been disclosed in several published interviews with Panasonic Sales people, there are no plans for the foreseeable future to release a model to replace the FZ50. Requests, begging, or "just trying to justify" why certain models should be introduced or continued are not going to change anything. Such decisions are based on many factors that consider the overall digital still camera market, not just comments voiced in this forum. At some point such requests become redundant and counter-productive."

So there you have it FZ10-20-30-50 owners, they have happily taken your money for 4 model years now they want you to bugger off and crawl back under the rock you came from.

How could a forum favorite for 4 years be so completely out of step with the general population 'out there'?

A simple explanation from Panasonic as to why the model line ceased after 4 years would have eased a lot of pain, for example " due to changing market conditions and falling demand there will be no successor to the FZ50", but no, FZ 50 owners were just left anxiously biting their nails every July since 2006.

Personally I moved to the Fuji s100fs, a hidden gem with a really bad review on this site, samples below:
