He was right. The body is just a device to hold the lens. Anybody can produce a high resolution body with a mound of features and gizmos but the lens? Ah. The lens. That's what separates the real camera manufacturers from the boys.
So you're Panasonic. You can easily build a body but lenses aren't your bag. So you do a deal to use the technology of a true German icon of photography, Leica, to provide the key part. It was Leica who invented the concept of the 35mm camera way back in 1925. Their lens quality is the standard by which others are measured.
And what a brilliant partnership it has been. I replaced my old Panasonic FZ28 with the newer FZ150 for three reasons. I liked the 18x optical zoom of my old Panasonic but I liked the 24x zoom of the FZ45 more. I liked the idea of the double-hinged display panel - especially for handheld overhead shots and I liked its higher resolution.
It's all very well having 24x optical zoom but without a decent image stabiliser, it's useless hand-held at full zoom. The Panasonic image stabiliser is fantastic. I have taken a lot of hand-held pictures at full optical zoom from a sailing yacht, hardly a stable platform but the Panasonic has never let me down. In fact, sometimes I will take a long zoom photo of a distant buoy whose name I cannot read using binoculars. Then I review the photo, zoom in and can easily read it's painted name. The FZ150's better than a pair of binoculars!
But one of the real benefits of these cameras is the 'handiness' of the package. Some people still walk around with a heavy bag, full of expensive lenses and then sometimes miss the shot they want for the sake of changing lenses. That's especially risky in bad weather or salty environments. Think of the lightweight FZ 150 as your camera AND a bagful of lenses. From a 25mm super-wide angle to a mirror-lens-like 600mm and all stops in between. No lens changing and all focal lengths are immediately accessible at the twitch of a forefinger.
What are the problems? I've had mine for over a year now and there haven't really been any except...the problem with using a 24x zoom is that it shows just how dirty our air has become, even at sea. Using full zoom you really notice the haze and the lack of clarity it causes. But that's like shooting the messenger. It's a great camera and especially it's Leica lens.
The menu layouts are typical panasonic, If you have used a panasonic before it won't take you long to fathom these out. I think that this camera could be used by a complete beginner, using the intelligent auto setting, and at the same time there is more than enough to keep the more experienced or advanced user happy. There are obviously a lot of new features that I haven't tried yet, (including the video facility) over the next few weeks the plan is to try everything. This review is based on the still results. The only negative comments I have at the moment are:
1) that if you are like me and have big hands/fingers, you may find that the rear buttons and controls are too easily engaged, especially when flipping out the rear screen.
2) No hard copy instructions included. Even a quick set up guide would be helpful. All instruction are on the included CDs.
Battery life seem to be ok, as I said I've taken about 300 shots, some with flash, indoors and out, and so far the battery level has only dropped 1 bar.
So all in all, up to now I am very impressed with this camera, even with the negatives I think it's still worth the 5 star rating I have given it.
UPDATE. I have now had this camera for 8 months, and I have tried most of the functions . I'm still blown away by the quality of the
Long end of the lens; I have yet to use a tripod! The video quality is also excellent, as good if not better than my dedicated video camera, also Panasonic. This camera has been updated by the FZ200 which is F2.8 throughout the focal length, which my brother managed to get for less than I paid for the FZ150!! It's a cruel world. Never mind, I'm still more than satisfied with the 150, my Canon cameras are gathering dust on a daily basis.
