Re: Panasonic DMC-FZ40

Thanks for the thought-provoking post and image examples.

Indeed, the tech in these tiny sensors has come on leaps and bounds since they first appeared. To me, the progress really began with the FZ28 and continued through the 38, 150 and 300, with just a slight noisy blip re the 200 and a drastic sinking re the very poor FZ80.

By all accounts, the FZ100 wasn’t so good either. But as long as the pixel count is kept to 12 million or under, chances are that any future FZs that appear with the same sized sensor will continue the admirable trend toward improvement. I’m just not so sure that we’ll come to see any new models anytime soon. Here’s to hoping though.

Thanks again,
