5 out of 5 eggsBest Camera I've ever owned!

Pros: Very quick shots. Automatic setting is decent, but the camera's true potential lies in the custom settings depending on your shot and conditions. 20X's zoom in one of the most compact cameras in this category.

Cons: No stand-alone battery charger; only a cable to charge from the camera is included. Lens cover seems cheap.

Other Thoughts: Have always purchased Canon cameras, and after doing my research, I found that the Panasonic was a bit better than the Canon in this class. I thought I might rethink my decision, but have been completely satisfied with this Panasonic Lumix.
