Pleased with it and no complaints

Bought this one for my wife as she found the G12 too cumbersome and more camera than needed. We show the images on Panasonic 42 Neoplasma screen and, quite surprisingly, the images are very sharp and the colours are all excellent. In use, the small size is a huge plus. It fires up quickly and the shutter lag is minimal and not a problem. We don't shoot sports or fast action very often and it is unreasonable to expect a camera like this to keep up with a Canon 1dx. A big surprise was how well this little thing performs in averagely lit interiors. The LCD is brilliant and very clear. The zooming range is also very good as it begins at a very wide 24mm which was the deal maker for us. The built quality is very impressive--metal and no sense of cheapness anywhere. Battery life is also excellent. When you take into account the price, (UK £125 with rebate--cheaper than the US at the time) it deserves the 5 STAR rating.


It is not perfect.
