I've had one for a few days now. Image quality is a large step up from the other two cameras I tried; Panasonic's noise reduction strategy leads to some graininess at high ISO; much better than the smearing of fine detail or big globs of color that I saw with the other cameras. Panasonic's been making pocket super-zooms longer than anyone else, and it shows - image stabilization is significantly more effective than Fuji or Nikon's, and the lens is sharp to the corners. The camera's easy to use, interface with switches is a bit dated but it's also tried-and-true. I almost gave up on finding a reasonable pocket zoom, but I'm keeping this one.
