I have the FZ 150 (and the FZ 28 and the FZ 40/45).

What amazes me is the "character" of the images due to the Leica design lens.

My DSLR can do everything better (faster, better ISO etc) but looking at the images shot by the FZs touches your heart and not obly the mind.

Nevertheless the FZ 150 has problems with "blown highlisghts" that the FZ 28 does not have.

Therefor skin tones can get a bit strange, have't figure out why and how to get around it. I own the camera for 2 months only and maee a test with wife and mother in law today:

Portrait shots: winner was the FZ 28, all other (house, garden lake etc) the FZ 150 won.

The Canon would not be an option for me but I should have considered the FZ 200 which I did not as it is not available in Thailand and I finaly bought the Leica version of the FZ 150 (V Lux 3) as they were selling them out.



Your assessment of the Leica lens mirrors my thoughts exactly.
