Help please....

I am considering buying this camera, Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TZ60 Digital Camera, has anyone got one of these and what is your opinion?

I seem to remember they got rave reviews when they first came out. Comments would be appreciated.

I use a TZ60 for its convenience, it fits in my jacket pocket and it use useful to have a camera to hand for any eventualities. For its type it is a good camera but if I am planning any walks or anything I do prefer to take the GX7 with the interchangeable lenses. There is a notable difference in quality, as you would expect.

Hope this helps,

Thank you Eric, it does, clearly you like it. I just want it as you say -- fits in your jacket pocket. It gets great reviews I just wanted some EPZ'rs views, nothing like getting it from the horses mouth.

I also have a TZ60, I purchased it for taking on longer walks and hikes as opposed to my Nikon D7000 and lenses. There is a difference in image quality as you would expect but I am quite impressed with it, image quality is still good, has an impressive zoom and it has RAW, which is a bonus on camera of this type.

Thank You Neil

I have read as may reviews as I can now and they are all good, only real criticism is a little noise at high ISO and no touch screen and with what my EPZ friends have said I placed an order, just hope it arrives in time for my holiday to Snowdonia on next week...
