Summary: TZ 9 was good, this is so much better, brilliant colour, superb auto focus, cant praise it enough (though would be better with an eye level view finder as well) I am sure the Lumix is the best of the compact cameras. I wish I had bought the Panasonic Bridge camera as well.
Summary: What a lovely versatile camera, producing excellent results suppassed all my expectations. would recommend this to anyone looking for a go anywhere camera that is well built and robust and does just what it say's on the tin.
Summary: Fantastic camera, takes really crisp, clear photographs. Has lots of great settings and effects that are fun to play around with and use to change the tone of a photo. The battery life is decent. The camera takes the pictures really quickly, which means you won't miss a photo opportunity. It has a nice sturdy feel and is easy to grip. I can't imagine a camera being better for this price. I love it.
