Hi everyone, a quick note to let you know we've just posted our full review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500 here:

Note, this camera is known as the FX520 in Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Just watched the video tour,Gordon.
Its amazing all the things thats included in this tiny camera.

Ive noticed nearly all the panasonic P&S cameras get a 16/20 for image quality,its a pity panasonic dont concentrate a bit more on sheer optical quality,Im sure people would rather have better image quality at the sacrafice of touch screen menus.

In the new Panasonic 2008 brouchre it states that a stylus pen is a standard with this model.

25mm great.
Thanks,Gordon.

Hi TZ2, I agree about the IQ, but the optical quality is actually very good - the lenses are generally excellent. It's the sensor that's the problem with Panasonic compacts... they need to put something a little bigger in there.

PS - I did mention the stylus in the written review!

Hi Gordon, yes I noticed the mention in the written review of stylus.
I have the TZ2 and Im very happy with it especialy as I picked it up for a bargain £139.
The TZ2 is the forgotten TZ panasonic.
I was very impressed with the 10x optical zoom and image stabilization feature.
Was it Zeiss who first came out with image stabilization on their 20x60 binoculars years ago? I think they were in before Canon.

Another thing that surprised me when I first viewed pictures on my PC screen was the very wide field when zoomed out. The new model is even wider at 25mm,wonderful.

Thanks Gordon.
Steve.
