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... I'm switching brands!
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 camera; terrible battery charger renders it almost useless.

Summary: This excellent camera requires a proprietary battery charger. It came with the camera but failed after less than a month, and has proven nearly impossible to replace. There are several chargers in the marketplace that CLAIM to be compatible, but aren't. (How much of your time and energy do you want to spend returning parts that should, but don't, work?) Even Panasonic's website doesn't list the charger as an accessory on their own product page for this camera! Hello???
Summary: Mi associo appieno alla valutazione di chi ha evidenziato le carenze qualitative della macchina . La personale pessima opinione deriva da un confronto diretto effettuato con una vecchia Canon di 6 anni fa, macchina da 5 Megapixel. Scattata la medesima foto, nel medesimo ambiente, su medesimo cavalletto ed in contemporanea, il confronto ha evidenziate le notevoli carenze nella qualità delle foto della Lumix.
