Pros: Quick start; easy to operate; long battery life; sharp lens; crisp images; fluid color; low shutter lag; much lower noise than expected; quality construction; HD video; gorgeous LCD screen; tactile surfaces; fits in shirt pocket.
Cons: No manual control; plastic tripod socket; worthless mic; no HD adapter cable included; v-e-r-y slow to focus in low light.
Other Thoughts: First use was newspaper assignment of historic reenactment (shooting side-by-side with History Channel and Missouri Dept. of Tourism peeps); left DSLR rig at home (Shssh, editor doesn't know), rolled the dice and shot the two-day event with the TZ5. Mock engagements, cannon fire, gun battles, cavalry, sword fights, music, cook fires, period costumes, town burning, etc. Never missed a shot; spent both days chuckling to self and amazed at quality; no stinkers in the lot; could've published three times as many pics as made copy; daily requests for CD copies of published work. If Panasonic will make a comparable camera with the option of manual controls I'll sell my Canon DSLR rig without concern or regret, the TZ5 is just that impressive.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens
Pros: It's ignorant to give this lens a low rating because of its 1.6x crop factor with a DSLR. On a digicam it shows 24mm, still a legitimate wide angle. Either way--DSLR or SLR--it shoots sharp, is color accurate, built well, and priced right.
Cons: Has to suffer the bloviating critique of unschooled and ill-informed digi-dweebs.READ FULL REVIEW
