I have seen D70 and Panasonic new digicam with 12X zoom. The lense on the panasonic (it is a Leica) have 12X zoom range and f2.8 throught the entire lense. Why is this camera so cheap? USD 500?

Normally ONLY the lense with 12x zoom and f2.8 would cost over USD 1000 alone!

can anyone explain this?

Because its brand name is Panasonic, something related to TV, vacuum, or portable cd player.

It is all about its image.
