Looks like it is going to be a great addition to the pocket sized travel zooms.

Thanks for the link. The sample images on camerlabs.com are the best I've seen so far - much crisper and sharper than the samples on photographyblog.com (makes me wonder whether they had a pre-production copy.)

Yes, they do look good.  I pre-ordered the ZS40 yesterday.  Thanks for posting this.  Panasonic is still saying the camera will be released in mid-March, although others on this forum have mentioned mid-Feb.  What's the latest rumor about release date?  Thanks

Thanks for the link Stuart. I agree the images look good, in a wide range of situations.

The panoramas look good too, and I couldn’t see any banding in the skies. Maybe this time they have fixed the panorama mode?

It seems Gordon’s TZ60 has v0.2 of the firmware, as did Photographyblog’s.

No release date is listed at B&H. And Amazon.com doesn't even show this camera on their site yet. ??

There was a report on Softpedia (here ) that the ZS40/TZ60 will start shipping from February 13.

Ian - I hope that shipping date (Feb. 13) is good.  Now I'm getting a little antsy.  Thanks for posting.

Re: Final production ZS40/TZ60 sample images

B&H just updated their site stating "Expected Availability: Mid April 2014". Adorama still says pre-order without any date information. Guess we'll have to wait till 2/13 to see if the Softpedia rumor was wrong or not. Maybe the rumored 2/13 ship date will be directly from Panasonic?
