Great camera at a great price

Summary: This is the third Panasonic camera that I have owned. I have stayed with the brand because of the quality of the product and the capabilities. Each Panasonic I have had has been better and better. I keep thinking there is nothing more I could want from a camera but they keep enticing me. This one is so unbelievably good - the 60x zoom is fantastic.
Pros: 60x Zoom, Amazing Facilities, Durable, Ergonomic, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls
Summary: This is well worth the money as long as you keep your expectations in check. 1) Image quality. In good light conditions with this camera it is easy to produce great images. In lower light conditions, the small sensor will require you to work harder. On longer zooms, you will work very hard to maintain good focus and good pictures especially above 900mm (35m equivalent) but images are good enough up to 60x with a solid tripod, they tend to diminish with intelligent zoom...
Summary: This is the best purchase I've made on Amazon. Amazing Camera, wonderful quality photos, easy to use. I will admit I am an amateur but it's easy to produce amazing results and learn more about photography with a Camera like this. The 20mm lens means my landscape photos have been amazing and whilst it isn't brilliant in low-light, it isn't shabby by any means and the optical zoom and wealth of options on the camera make up for anything this camera might appear to lack.
Summary: People will buy this camera for TWO reason only the ZOOM ability and ULTRA WIDE ability so I assume most people will just want to read about them so: 1) ZOOM - is exceptional, no obvious distortion and the stabilizer keeps the image pretty shake free. 2) ULTRA WIDE angle is as it says much wider than a standard lens and wider than most.
Summary: This is a fantastic quality camera. I required a camera with very high optical zoom and as far as I am aware this is the most powerful on the market. Even at full zoom I have achieved some excellent quality photographs.
I had a FZ45 and it was great, the FZ72 is even better !

Summary: I just loved my FZ45- it was a great bridge camera. I started off using it as a "point and shoot" on auto, and quickly moved onto fully manual operation as the camera design made it so easy. It took some amazing images. I sold it on as I was looking for a bridge camera with a further telephoto reach ie.. The FZ72. The FZ72 is a newer version of the FZ45 but with better optics and more functions. I thought the FZ45 was great, but this is just amazing.
Summary: I had a Lumix before and was pleased with it and after reading reviews decided to splash out on this one . I am glad I did , absolutely superb Used the zoom at maximum range was and was really impressed . Took pictures of a hot air balloon at dusk and quality was superb I am looking forward to taking it on holiday and getting some great snaps
