Panasonic Pocket Camera,...ZS70, 80, Other?

Hi Folks,

I thought I was finally getting satisfactory results from my ZS200,....wrong. JPEGs are okay at short focal lengths, but totally unsatisfactory at 360mm, particularly on birds,...simply no detail.

I thought I was maybe expecting too much from a 1" sensor, so this morning I compared the ZS200 to an FZ300, with a smaller sensor. At 360mm, the smaller sensor was simply sharper.

To the point, the ZS200 will be returned. I enjoyed the size of the camera and will buy a shirt pocket replacement. Since I like zoom, and Panasonic, I will likely get another Panasonic, this time with the smaller sensor and longer zoom.

I don't buy cameras without forum input and wonder if the ZS80 might be my best choice.

Thanks for sharing your opinions!

Jack
