This it what I find most interesting about your post. In what specific ways did you find the ZS3 worse than the TZ4 ? Just curious as to your thoughts on that .

With the ZS3 I noticed the skin tones were often too yellow and it tended to overexpose by 1/3-1/2 stop when compared to the TZ4.

Interesting. Were you (perchance) using "i-Exposure" (which pumps up the ISO Sensitivity Gain by approximately that much when it decides to activate) ?

... TZ4 was a real Panasonic sleeper IMO.

Other than the AF System issue that I experienced, the limited fine-detail (even at base ISO=100), and the nearing "crispy" sharpening, it was a nice little item. Built like a (lightweight) little tank, and excellent battery-life. Great for close-up work !
