    Wouldn't you know I just bought a FZ8 five weeks ago, and I love it, now the new and improved model shows up and my camera seems so lacking in features. The AE lock looks good and the closer tele macro focus and the streched at both ends zoom, the extra pixel is no big deal. The FZ8 is RAW camera number five for me, G5, 20D, S70, R1 came first.
    I will make it number six if Panasonic updates the FZ50 with a stretched lens and a faster RAW shot to shot.
    Thanks for this blog you are performing a great service to the camera community, my lens caps are off to you!

    Thank you Richard for your comments and your kind words! Indeed the FZ8 was an important update for Panasonic! The FZ-series has come a long way. It wasn't long ago that they quietly introduced the tiny FZ1!
