Very nicely built camera with attractive 14-50 2.8/3.5 kit lens.
Operation is 'old-school', which I like. I never got colors, contrast and sharpness of the jpeg engine to my liking. I did not want to be forced to shoot raw always, therfor I sold the camera after 2 years for almost the same price. I bought a Olympus E1 instead. Although lower pixel count (5 vs 7,5 MP) I like the results from the Olympus MUCH better than of the Panasonic.

The built in bounce flash really works great!

Problems:

unsatisfying jpeg results
