Summary: Having the opportunity to enjoy this camera for several years on an advanced/pro photo basis, I am gifting my camera to my daughter this Christmas so she may enjoy it. If I did not need more manual control and a super fast shutter speed, I would not be upgrading this camera.
Summary: I am not a digital camera maven, nor am I highly experienced. I use these devices for my work as a glass artist and I view them from a very utilitarian perspective. The fine points of Venus engine noise issues and sensor size mostly escape me, and I do not analyze image quality with a magnifying...
Summary: I love my FZ 50! I loved my FZ30 also and it sold me on this one. For what you may spend on a lens for a digital SLR you can have this camera that suits 99% of my needs. A zoom range of 35-420mm (equivalent)tack sharp optics, hot shoe for external flash,rotateable electronic view finder,sturdy...

Summary: Well, i have just purchased the Panasonic FZ50 for about 3 weeks now, after about 600 test shots with it i have come to a conclusion that this FZ50 is by far the best FZ i've ever own. I have owned FZ7, FZ10, FZ15, FZ20(2), FZ30 and now FZ50.
Summary: Those whom claim the optics are not really Leica are in need of a serious eye examination.
Pros: This Panasonic Lumix is my sixth. It is my favoriote of the bunch. I enjoy it more each day that I use it. The manual focus, and the zoom range, are both located on the lens barrel. They move with superb smoothness adjusting the best optics in the business. The proof is in the p[ictures that it t...
Cons: The 10 megs is overkill as half that amount would have been plenty enough.
Summary: I have had my FZ50 for about 6 months now and I really like the camera, but I feel they could do more. I've taken the camera on two trips to Africa and a few other trips and have gotten some good shots.
