Summary: Since my first 'digital' camera, I have owned 6 other small digital cameras. I have paid as much as 4 times the price of my Panasonic Lumix for one camera. I paid less than $100.00 for the Lumix and it is by far the BEST digital camera I've owned. I would give more than 5 stars for 'value for money if I could! Great Ebay price..
Summary: Absolutely love this camera - bought it as a backup for my other, which is the exact same one. Great pictures, easy to use, lightweight. Would highly recommend, especially for a novice. However, you might want to note that it does not take abuse well; the shutter will stick if you try and use it in the rain. I would also strongly recommend buying the plug-in car charger. The bottom line is I like the camera so much that I have two.
"Excellent picture quality with lots of pro features."

Pros: Great zoom with real wide-angle. Even greatly enlarged pictures show very little pixelation. Offers lots of manual and semi-auto shooting modes for photo geeks. Easy-to-use. Scene modes work well. Excellent build quality with most metal body.
Cons: LCD display could be brighter in sunlight. A little slow shot-to-shot. Flash could be a little brighter.
Summary: best point and shoot ever owned! I've owned many camaras this is the absolute best one ever. I also owned many Slrs , this camara does a great job on shutter speed and action (sports) photography.
Summary: Bought a new TZ8. It has a hard time focusing, the pictures are not clear and do not have crisp definition. Colors murky. My previous Lumix was a DMC-TZ1 and I expected at least the same quality pictures if not better, and was SORELY disappointed. I'll be returning it.
Great performance for the price. Excellent value for money!

Summary: I am completely satisfied with this camera - the menus are intuitive, the startup speed is pretty good, the battery is good, and the pictures it takes are great. The intelligent auto works great if you're too lazy to adjust the settings, but it gives you lots of opportunity to make manual adjustments if you want. I'd gladly recommend it.
