Hi All,

I do not know a lot about cameras.
I am learning.
I currently have a Panasonic TZ7, which I have been impressed with and before this I had a Lumix FX35.
I do want to stay with Panasonic, but have been looking at the new Panasonic Lumix FZ45.

Would you suggest this is a wise move from the TZ7??

Many Thanks
Michele

It mostly depends on what your old camera doesn't do, I guess. What's wrong with your current camera?

I cannot choose what subject to focus on with the TZ7 also the optical zoom on the FZ45 is double that of the TZ7

Do you think it's a lot better on the FZ45?

I read reviews and on the digital view finder you can touch whatever part you want to focus

On the TZ7 you could change the AF mode, couldnt you?

On the TZ7 there are as much as AF settings as the FZ45 has.
Play with the functions before spending such much money.

The FZ45 does not have a touch-screen.
