Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Image

Image:
"You do have to be careful if using the AUTO mode indoors as image noise becomes a problem at ISO's of 200 and above."
_
"3mp is probably everyone's concern with this camera,but the images and processor are so good it will easily hold its own with most excellent 6-8mp cameras."
_
"I'll keep this short- fast start up- takes SD cards and can run them at high speed- optical image stabilizer works wonderfully- very long 12x zoon- solid and takes nice pictures- has video and full manual mode- cheapI really enjoyed this camera."
_
"However, the best part of digital is the ability to charge the battery, use a 512MB memory card like I bought, and not be conscious that you have 36 chances to get a decent photo before the film runs out."
_
"I was also pleased that the Panasonic had image stabilization, because my experiences with the Olympus taught me that I could take sharp hand-held images at 400mm focal lengths around 70 percent of the time."
_
"That means that you can zoom all the way out to 12x and get a clear, bright pic."

Lens

Lens:
"My only problem is how dirt is taken into the camera via the lens extending and when it contracts back into place, it takes with it any dirt, dust or sand in the environment, which eventually results in that same dirt, dust and sand on the inner lens and recorded on your pictures."
_
"Leica Lenses are absolutley the best made and this one is no exception, every shot was sharp center to edge and colors were spot on."
_
"A 3 MP with good lens can beat a 5 MP camera."
_
"Because of this and the high-quality Leica lens, I can take pictures that used to require flash just with the room lights in my house."
_
"I had printed out letter-size pictures on my computer printer with the c2100, so I knew that 2 megapixels and a good zoom lens were better than more megapixels."
_
"The lens is fantastic."
