I've not really bothered with many pocket type cameras in the past but decided to give the TZ90 (ZS70) a go. I've only had it for a week now and using it literally as a point 'n' shooter, after changing a few settings, it's given me a mixed bag of results. So far I've learned it doesn't really like the sun anywhere in front of it and starts to wash out real easy when it is, especially when there's a real summers day with a totally rich blue sky. The resulting photo's look as if the sky is almost white at times. With the sun behind you, most photos are really great, rich in colour and in detail, for a compact anyway. Some pics also get a bit blurry at the edges at minimum focal length, while others are quite good, depending on the subject and its background etc. I guess I will have to play with settings a bit more. So far the jury is split but I can't complain as I got a great discount on the TZ90. I don't think it's anywhere as capable as my Sony A6000 but the A6000 eats batteries..
