This is a beauty. I bought it recently and it does wat it promises to do. Very good color, very fast, no lag time, and good software. I use Apple MacIntosh. If you are planning to do larger prints than its not for you but for the screen and small prints I do not think there is a nicer camera. Especially for portraits because of the image stabilized long telelens and no lag time. Problems: No problems found.

High quality lens, excellence tele/wide zoom at all distances. Easy to use and understand in a very short period of time. The body is made of engineering plastic however the body construction looks strong enough. The stabilizer install in the camera is very useful when take a tele> 300mm. The picture quite sharp and closest to the natural colour. Review button help you fast quick look and delete pic if you like. The transfer file to computer is also simple and fast. I have the right decision. ...

I am impressed with the ease of use with this new Panasonic camera. I am a menu coniseur , I like cell phones and VCRs that are easy to program and are well thought out and this camera is hands down the best I have ever used. I have borrowed newer model , Cannon, Nikkon, and Fuji cameras and they all have poor to OK menus, this camera is easy to use but in no way stripped of features. The optics are excelent, it has a great zoom and shoots well in low light because of the huge Leica lens. Pro ...

2.0 mega pixel camera with an excellent 12 optical zoom. Image quality is so amazing and the colors that it spalshes on the ccd are undefineable. Image Stabilizer mode comes very handy and works really well. Leica Vario-Elmarit lens was made especailly for digital camera. So you might think it's something not like the original Leica. Well, I havent even seen the originals but these lens won't definately let you down. Problems: Body is made of plastic so it feels a bit weak. There is no A/S/M ...

Ordered from Japan, this has turned out to be an excellent, small, take-anywhere camera. Image quality is very good for 2mp and such a long lens, with high resolution and little of the fringing problems associated with most big zooms. The stabilization is wonderful, lets you shoot at slow speeds. Excellent white balance system, very good colors with rich, textural images (a vast improvement over earlier Lumix cameras). Though bought in Japan, everything on the camera is available in English ...
