Excerpt: I've had this pup for almost 5 years and dig it. No it's not my Nikon d7100 but what it does, it does darned well.If you go beyond point and shoot , it'll keep you happy. Also it survived a fall from a table onto a tile floor.Leica lens gives great pics.When I don't feel like using a dslr, this goes...
Summary: This has been a great camera for the price. I studied reviews in a particular price range. This Panasonic was rated highly if one took the time to learn how to use the settings. The reviews were accurate. If you leave it on automatic, the pictures are okay, even good.

Summary: Used this camera now for 3 weeks in fairly rough conditions (900 mile, 15 days circle bike ride through Idaho). The camera performed very well. I have found that you really need to learn the camera and all the setting option and the effects they can have on your photos.
Summary: it came with no manual. okay there WAS a manual, but it's a folded piece of paper with small images from an actual manual which are very hard to read or fully comprehend the images / diagrams. An actual little booklet would be good as would a PDF (which would be searchable).
Summary: I bought this camera for myself as a present for mother's day. This panasonic lumix is one of the best purchase I made in my life to date. This is an excellent camera that produces top quality images. The more I read up on my camera the better my pictures comes out.
Summary: I liked this camera very much for 18 months, then a mark appeared on the pictures as if there were dust or water spot on the lens. I thought it an anomaly so ordered a second one. Voila Same problem the first time that one was used. They continue to get good ratings, but twice burned...
Summary: The only thing is when recording a video at a place that is exceptionally loud such as Electric Daisy Carnival, the audio quality of the camera lowers itself to a really muffled sound and it is quite annoying if you're an audiofile. Other than that, picture are good.
Summary: Bought this camera prior to a cruise vacation with the husband. We were delighted with our great photos upon the return from our cruise. THis fall, I took photos of the children (similar to a portrait studio) outside - just to see how they would turn out. I was so delighted.
