Excerpt: I've owned numerous cameras, both film and digital. I've also owned several cameras with digital OIS including an FZ5, FZ20 and two FZ7's. Over the last year the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7s have become my cameras of choice. Yes, they are light weight, but not toys at all. Rather, they are impressive working tools. The results are impressive, and if you learn to use its features, including noise suppression, it performs wonderfully.
Summary: This camera is excellent; I cannot believe i get it at that price. It is worth three time the price i pay for it; it's just a phenomenal camera, regarding the quality of the pictures you can take. Thanks a lot. I decided to buy it because i was looking for a camera to replace mine i gave to my daughter; but i was not excpecting something that great for the price
Great camera for those who don't need top of the line

Summary: My wife and I love this camera. So much so that we bought a second one (used) after our first one was damaged. I like the use of SD cards, and the availability of lens adaptors, etc. Very nice quality camera that was really great about 3 years ago. It can't compete with the newest models, but a second-hand model would be a great value.
Summary: Spectacular control for the price. Great image processor and a lens that is hard to beat...especially at the price. I use this camera primarily when I want to travel light (normally I use a Nikon D80)...this camera meets all my needs when I want a great image without carrying all my usual gear.
Summary: Loved this camera to death. Used it almost every day. Only thing I hated was that you could not zoom nor autofocus in video mode. Doesn't matter anyways cause if I wanted those features I would have bought a video camera. I had to give this camera to my young brother so he would learn the basics of adjusting shutter speeds and f-stops.
Summary: I love this camera. When I got this camera it was very easy to figure out how to use it and what all of the buttons were for even though it didnt come with pamphlet. The picture quality of this camera is excellent. If you want clear great quality pictures than this is a camera for you. I was very happy with this purchase and would buy another camera just like this one if the one I just bought were to get broken. My husband and I constantly fight over the camera now.
Summary: As a Leica user for sixty years, I waited patiently for Leitz to come out with an affordable digital. I didn't see it, so I bougdht the Lumix F27. The lens is on a par with any of my Leica lenses. A fantastic little camera. And a very affordable price. I can't say enough about it.
