FZ-100 first shots: HORRIBLY WASHED OUT!
Jul 21, 2010

DPreview shows us two sample shots to get an idea of the 25-600mm zoom range.

There is the usual warning: this is pre-prod, etc.

Still, the shots are full size. And what do we see? They look like watercolours! The colours bleed so much it's a joke! Previous models in the range delivered MUCH cleaner output.

What happened? Really bugsy pre-prod model? Light levels too low?

I'm in the market for a potential successor to my beloved Panny superzoom but I'm not going to settle for such ghastly stuff IQ wise.

Thoughts?
