One of the best point and shoots available
This is one of the best point and shoot cameras on the market, well designed, simple to use, very small size (some may find it too small in their hands) and the best feature is the Leica DC Vario lens. Panasonic's partneship with Leica has added real quality to their image quality.
The only thing I don't like is the build quality, a lot of plastic and the battery/card cover feels flimsy but at 105 GBP you can't get everything.
You would have to spend double to better it, and even then I'm not sure it would be that much better?
Intelligent Auto mode is great for beginers and everyday picture taking, and there are a few modes where you can tweak the controls for those who want to.
If you're looking for a camera to carry around with you all the time then this it, but if it falls out your pocket I'm not sure it would survive.
