Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: Brought the camera a few weeks ago as my mini camera to replace my DSLR when I want something compact. choose this camera as a result of it's relevant slightly higher aperture then other ultra compact cameras in it's price range as well as it's zoom range and the fact it starts at 24mm. starting with the fact the camera starts at 24mm, it's great in some cases but problematic at most.
