Hello, I dont know about "special look" to them as I unfortunately find the noise when enlarged to 100% unacceptable especially at 125 iso. I know we are talking only a 1" sensor but am I missing something? Anybody else feel the same way?

I was afraid to say anything in case I too was totally missing something but I feel exactly the same. Don't really know if it's noise or something else but it has a really noisy grainy look to it, just not crisp & sharp, that I think is even beaten by the smaller sensored FZ200 sample.

I really want one of these cameras but these examples aren't the most encouraging I've seen. Not trying to take a poke at anyone, or at the camera, but I would like to hear this "look" explained.


PS - I've looked with Safari & Chrome on a Mac & with IE & Chrome on a PC. All show the same result at 100%.

I also was surprised at how noisy the photos were even at low ISO at both wide and tele ends - it literally jumped out at me - then I scrolled down to check if anyone else thought the same and found your posts. I was planning to buy this camera for an upcoming trip to Asia in October in spite of its price tag and now I am not so sure.
