Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great for a step up from beginner I love having a camera with a 12X zoom. No lugging of extra lens. It also has most of the features of an SLR, so the variety of settings is almost infinite. I found it much easier to use than a Nicon, but the picture quality in my camera is not as good. That is my biggest disappointment, pictures that are too bright or too dark. That is the reason for automation, isn't it. I will look for a different brand on my next buying spree, but will still consider a Panasonic/Leica.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from No need for a SLR camera. Buy the FZ50 Usually with all in one cameras there are many trade offs in the quality of photos but the FZ50 with the Leica lens makes an eception to the rule. I used to be a proponent of the SLR cameras with a huge collection of lenses which equaled a lot of weight and money. The FZ 50 eliminates all that with the Leica quality glass lens included ( 28 to 420 MM zoom. F2.8 to 3.5 means it is fast too). Want versatility? It is action packed with every feature you can imagine from manual to totally auto shooting experiences. It also has program features that I usually don't use but is a nice addition. Set the camera on auto and even a novice can use this camera and get exceptional results. Now if you area serious photo bug, you have the versatility that you would normally only find on SLR cameras costing over a thousand dollars. Then you have to also buy lenses too ( average 400 MM lense for SLRs cost over $2000.00 plus in the F2.8 to 4.0 range). Built in flash is fine ( up to 20 feet)but I prefer to use the dedicated flash from Panasonic which gives fully auto flash up to 60 feet since Panasonic did provide a hot shoe for that purpose. Image satbilization is excellent in this camera and offers you the capibility of shooting most shots in the zoom range hand held. I do hasten to remind you it does not preclude the need for a tripod in the ultra zoom range (300 to400MM). A sturdy tripod is best. I have yet to find any photographer that can shoot at the 400MM plus range even with image stabilization hand held and get a sharp picture. I find this camera a joy to use and do get excellent results in different aspects from protrait shots to nature shots with enlargements up to 18x24 sizes. As a matter of fact, I have moth balled my pro line of SLR film cameras and lenses and use this camera for all of my photography work now. The quality is that good It comes with a well detailed manual for a reason. I strongly suggest to study it thoroughly and become familiar with all of it's features. If you don't, you will not get the results that this camera can deliver. It can out perform most of the entry level Digital SLRs and the "kit" lenses that they come with. The only draw back to this camera is that you do get some digital noise if you use an ISO setting of 400 or higher. 400 is not bad but the best results are at 200 or lower ISOs.
