Excerpt: This camera lacks only one unimportant feature to be like the ZS40. I haven't used it yet but one good feature is that it uses he same battery as my ZS20 which has now failed. I have two extras and a charger. The ZS40 uses a different battery.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Summary: After doing some research, I decided on the Lumix ZS25 since I had the Lumix ZS20 but lost it. It is what I expected and what I was looking for. Some thing easy to operate. For the price, it is a great value.
