I love this camera. I thought the ZS40 was good, what with the long zoom and reasonably good quality at full zoom, but this camera is distinctly better in one respect, unless I'm just imagining it - the images seem to "pop" better or have a more 3D look than the previous model - the ZS40/TZ60. 1 and 2: f6.4, 1/640, ISO 80. 3: f6.4, 1/125, ISO 80. 4: f6.4, 1/500, ISO 80. 5: f6.4, 1/125, ISO 80. The moon image shows the resolution limit pretty clearly. I tried increasing the contrast enough to show some crater detail - this is one that should only be viewed at arm's length or further. Still, it's better at 12 mp than what I could get with the 18 mp ZS40. The white body of the egret doesn't show significant detail, but that's all I get with Program mode auto-exposure. The Dove's eye was in focus pretty much, but the body not so much (don't know why). The pelicans aren't as good as this camera can do, but they're my best so far - hand-holding the camera at maximum zoom and getting a good fix on the bird is really difficult, but I'll get better eventually.
