hello world: will there ever be a REVIEW of this cam?
Sometimes, I think they they're not going to do the Pana's review. Even the later released model had finished the review!!!
It provided a 4.2X zoom ability, electronic zoom, AF-Lock button, and 0.72X macro ability. Thus, I do think it is an all-rounded lens for a novice.
However, about using macro at 50mm f6.3, I am still sorry to say, "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak"
