FZ7 is a great looking camera with excellent features; brilliant lens, fabulous image quality, decent looks, durable and battery longevity. Software is reliable. It posses 12x optical zoom that is nearly equivalent to 36 to 432mm on a 35mm film camera and easy to handle. I love this camera, it is simply great.
