LEICA 28mm Wide-Angle Lens with 10x Optical Zoom
Now you can fit sweeping landscapes into a single frame with the 28mm wide-angle setting. Pull in subjects from far away to capture even subtle facial expressions with the dynamic 280mm telephoto setting. Ideal for traveling, the DMC-TZ5 Lumix® 9.1-megapixel digital camera combines a wide-ranging LEICA DC Vario-Elmar lens with a handy, compact body. The Extra Optical Zoom function also extends the zoom to as much as 16.9x, giving you even greater telephoto power.
Intelligent Auto Mode Helps Get Great Shots in Every Situation
Set the TZ5 to iA mode and let the five Intelligent Auto functions team up to help prevent shooting errors. Intelligent Exposure corrects lighting differences, so images come out just the way you see them; Intelligent Scene Selector chooses the mode that best fits the situation; MEGA Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) helps prevent blurring from hand-shake; Intelligent ISO Control helps prevent motion blur; and Face Detection helps produce clear portraits by optimizing the focus and exposure settings.
Big, Bright 3.0" LCD with Intelligent LCD Function
With a total of 460,000 dots, the big, bright 3.0" diagonal LCD makes viewing and shooting easier and more comfortable. The Intelligent LCD adjusts brightness automatically in 10 steps as the ambient light level changes, so images are clear, bright and easy to see day or night, indoors or outdoors.
30 fps High-Definition Motion Images and HD Output
The TZ5 can record motion images with sensational 1280 x 720 HD resolution at 30 frames per second (fps). You can use the zoom, too, and capture some truly dramatic shots. When you're done shooting for the day, just connect the camera to an HDTV and you're ready to view your still shots and motion images in high-definition beauty.
Special Travel Functions for the Perfect Trip
The Clipboard allows you to take photos of maps, timetables and other travel info. They are saved in a separate folder of the built-in memory to distinguish them from normal photos. You can print titles and other characters on the photos you shoot with the Title Edit and Stamp. This is great for creating your own postcards from a vacation trip. Input your departure date and destination with the Travel Date Setting. Later, during photo viewing, the camera will indicate on which day of the trip each shot was taken and the location.

So I purchased the Panasonic DMC-TZ5 as soon as I saw it on special offer!
Pros: up to 9.1 megapixels
10x optical zoom
28mm wide angle lens
3" LCD screen
Extremely good results if you manage to choose the right mode/options!
Cons: Considerably larger and heavier than most other 9-10 megapixel cameras
As goes with most digital cameras these days, it has no viewfinder -just an LCD screen which makes it very difficult to
see people's faces/expressions clearly if you need spectacles to read!
Quite complicated to use/get used to compared to a more basic digital camera.
For a younger user, I expect this will prove to be a great camera. Image stabilisation, internal memory plus memory card slot, a squillion different shooting modes (2 baby modes, sport, low-light, FOOD [?], etc.).
Not too small, easy to hold & smart looking. Also available in a few places in blue.
