Summary: Picture quality is excellent. However the design for ease of use is lacking. The menu button on the rear lower right is constantly being tripped while taking a picture. If you are right handed this is almost a certainty.
Summary: This is my 3rd Panasonic pocket sized Lumix. The first was 5 megapixels and had a 3X zoom. It still works great but I wanted a longer zoom and more resolution so I bought the DMC-FS15 about a year ago. The FS15 has 12 megapixels, a 5X zoom, but no touch screen.
