As a digital novice I don't yet have enough experience to comment on exposure or low light performance of the FZ-10.
However there are a few improvements I would like to see in the successor:
:arrow: A FITTED CASE AS STANDARD EQUIPMENT(not even available as an 'extra'
:arrow: A LENS THAT WILL ACCEPT FILTERS DIRECTLY(I don't like unprotected glass when I choose not to use the lens hood
:arrow: A REMOTE SHUTTER RELEASE
:arrow: A FOCUS INDICATOR LIGHT(not too hard surely!)
