Lens

Lens:
"Horrible camera purchased for my week in Cancun and the lens fogged up and pictures were blurry."
_
"Optical zoom mechanism is inside the camera, which means you don't have to worry about bumping the lens while it's out (which also greatly reduces the likelihood that you'll have a fatal lens error, the death of all my previous cameras)."
_
"After this challenge, the lens itself is not quite as sharp."
_
"It's great because the lens is tough to scratch, the camera can handle being dropped, and overall it just feels sturdy in your hands."
_
"Good design prevents dust and moisture between the lens"
_
"My old camera took great pictures and never had problems with the lens fogging (it didn't happen even once in 6 years of heavy use in pools, at the beach, snorkeling, in hot humid climates and very cold climates)."
_
"The lens is equivalent to 25-100mm which is a great range for ideal pictures."
_
" I have no prior experience with Panasonic cameras in the past and have been solidly in the Canon camp for years after investing in some good lenses (glass)."
