Amazing good camera for the price, very easy for an amateur like me to get good pictures in iA mode. Plenty of configuration options if desired, so definitely a camera to grow in. Easy to find additional accessories on ebay as eg remote switch that allows long exposure times> 60min if you are not satisfied with the generous 60 sec shutter speed and the camera allows in the original design. Since as many safe states already, 2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range is too good to take the opportunity.

Amazing camera. A very good compromise. Chose between systems and this and at a fraction of the cost, I got almost everything I wished for! Positive: - Constant 2.8 at maximum aperture throughout the zoom range. - Good operating time of the battery - Fast - You get a lot of new photo opportunities - Cruel image stabilization Negative - A bit late to get the focus at maximum zoom (however, not compared to the corresponding SLR with long zoom) - Decent at dark Recommended! Have received great images and movies on the air show. Counting craters on the moon and come close to birds and animals. Have also found the toilet at about 300 meters distance at a beach in Grand Canaria! The text was about 10 inches high ..... :)

'm Very happy with this camera. I had the predecessor FZ18 before so I'm used superzoom concept. This kind of camera is obviously a compromise on the sensor still suffering a bit when the lights are low, but still performs significantly better than its predecessor. Especially I like the night mode (10 images assembled into one for easier take freehand), HDR mode, and of course the constant brightness throughout the zoom range. The only real minus side is that the camera has no GPS so you have no geotagging on the photos and it leads me to the two stars. Recommended!
