Re: How do you like your TZ200 / ZS200?

I'm happy with it - yes, it is softer than others (I also use m43 with prime lenses).

But I think that's the only 'weakness' - and it is not a deal-breaker, at least not for me. This is my go-to camera for family outings, and its lens focal lengths and its portability are really key. I could look for, and find, softness in every picture taken, but why do that? I share my pictures with my friends and family online and by phone, and we print 8x6 sizes. Lens softness is a non-issue.

And I'm most impressed with the raw processing latitude. I know you could tweak the JPG engine to your liking, but I like to work on the raw versions. See quick example here:
