Digital Camera Failure Rates:

Panasonic found to be the most reliable manufacturer of Cameras

http://www.squaretrade.com/htm/pdf/Came ... _study.pdf

SquareTrade analyzed three year failure rates for over 60,000 new Digital Cameras.

"Panasonic takes the cake, being the only manufacturer to have a failure rate below 6%."

Interesting that in the $300-$500 range (i.e. FZ’s) Panasonic is again the most reliable:
“With less than 2% of Premium Point-and-shoot cameras malfunctioning within two years.
This is quite impressive as it beats even the average reliability of DSLRs”.
As for who the worst Premium manufacturer is: “Canon’s Premium Point-and-shoot cameras
were the least reliable amongst the 5 brands and showed little improvement over the reliability
of their value cameras (6.2% malfunction rate for Premium and 6.4% for Value cameras)”.

"Of the brands we examined, Panasonic is the clear leader in digital camera reliability.
They are the only manufacturer to have less than a 6% failure rate for sub-$300 models,
and they achieved a less than 2% failure rate for $300-500 models, much better than the
other brands we looked at".

So it's official .... you've chosen well ;)

Oh yeah... I'm enjoying this news....
By someway I hate this SX canon series (direct competitor of FZ series) :)
Canon seems to be the unreliable camera in the premium P&S section... :shock:
