I bought it twice, so that says it all.

Summary: Great camera. I had this model before, but a drop caused the on/off switch to break, and rendered the camera useless. I had that one for three years, never had a case on it. It had gotten wet, been dropped, you name it, but even its plastic body endured.
Summary: Extremely low weight for a mega-zoom. Sharp lens with vibrant colors. ISO 400 is well detailed,800 and 1600 need tweaking. Extremely sharp details at low ISO. Zoom is well stabilized. Flash is strongly powered. Handy ergonomics. Not the best but better choice a mega-zoom in such a low price range.
Summary: Very good camera. Takes beautiful pictures. Lots of features for a creative user. Deserves 5 stars, but for detailed settings procedures difficult to remember. But, one can use Intelligent Auto Mode to take very good pictures without referring to the manual at all. Used it for a year.
Summary: Bought this camera because I wanted to have something with a zoom, so I could zoom into take pictures of the humming birds at my feeder. Being a novice to photography, I decided I should start out with a bridge camera.
Summary: I am a Nikon DSLR user but wanted a camera I could carry with me when traveling around town. I looked at quite a few cameras and finally settled with this camera. I liked the reviews but was undecided until I looked at one in a large discount store. The camera felt "right" in my hand.
Summary: I purchased this camera in early December, after much research and the realization that although I had thought I wanted a DSLR, I really didn't want to lug around all the additional lenses I'd want. That's when I discovered the intermediate (more than point and shoot, not SLR) digital.
Summary: I played with all the super zooms for weeks before deciding on the Panasonic. I needed a bridge camera to hold me over until the full frame sensor SLR bodies become more affordable. I am a low and natural light junkie and this is my first digital camera purchase.
Summary: At age 71, I finally got to the point where lugging my Nikon DSLR, 3 lenses, flash, batteries, filters, etc. around became just too darn much. I originally was going to get the Nikon P80, but the reviews on Amazon scared me off of that one!
Can't beat the pricing for such a great performing camera

Summary: I bought this camera site unseen (other than on the internet) I have been using a Canon G3 for quite some time, and was question not getting another Canon product. The FZ28 is quite a camera. The zoom works great (can't believe I've been shooting with a 3X this long).
