I "needed" a TZ
I have been very happy with my LX7 and Sony HX200. However the HX200 is more than an old guy can carry on long walks. So I bought a ZS25 as a new companion for the LX7. Have not been anywhere to give the reach a meaningful test other than a fence. The reach was fine when I learned to hold very still with such a little camera. Next 2 weeks I will get some shots of barns and farm action with the ZS25.
But on my first outing the only thing I saw that was interesting was flowers. I am pleased with the results. Yes sharpening and a Topaz vignette.
Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape
