Those were great shots. Very nice and sharp for hand held. My taste would have lightened them slightly. I am amazed you got the focus so well with all the branches in front of the birds. Good job!!

About 1/2 of the commentors here seem to forget that this and other Panasonic cameras haveVERY GOOD Optical Image Stabilization, and as such a steady hand & 'good grip' aren't all that important at 1/125th second.

I think you have put your finger on it, Jerry, the focusing is brilliant.

And - I, too think lighter would be better:

What I AM wondering about are the strange "ISO 160" & "ISO 125" which I'll bet were chosen by the camera - what's up with this? I am finding the same thing on my ZS19 and at first I thought it had to do with +/- EV settings, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
