I tried the F 35 and the FZ100 but this little gem outshines them, I use it mainly for birds and occasional trips to the zoo, I like it's fast focus and ease of operation , switching to macro etc is simple and the menu is uncomplicated, I don't miss the swivel screen but wish it had a hot shoe, A really good camera at a reasonable price.

I tried a few cameras before deciding to keep the FZ 47 I hated that toggle switch on the 35 and the 100 did not seem to be up to it. once you get the settings right there is no need for RAW, Who needs a flash shoe or an articulated screen? The image quality is excellent even at extreme zoom making the camera a perfect travel companion.
