Husband frowns on FZ10 pre-order

Well Friday I pre-ordered a FZ10 from J&R. Today my husband says that I will be working as a "beta tester" for Panasonic. My husband is an engineer who works in research and develpoment of telecommunications products. He says that companies are so pressured to get things to market quickly that often they just let the first run of a new product produced act as a beta test for fine-tuning the product. He says that companies often release the first run of a new product and then wait for the credible reviewers to do final product tweaks. Obviously though, it would hurt Panasonic's reputation to release a product that has problems. My husband thinks I should cancel my order and wait a few months after initial release to buy the camera. What do you think? ..............Wendy
