I love my Lumix,
Everyone asked me what kind of camera do you have? Takes great zooms for nature pictures. Great stabilization!!! Very happy with it

After reading several good reviews for this cam, i finally bought one and I am very satisfied with my choice. Pros: very good zoom, wide angle lens, fast capture, good battery life, vibrant colors, many scenes to choose from, can save 2 preset scenes in the dial. Cons: default at wide angle lens, trimming or cropping a picture is hard because the zoom is fixed at 2x, 4x, 8x, a bit bulky for the pocket. Overall, I would very much recommend this cam!!
