Sometimes I see wonderful, crisp shots posted, and sometimes not. I know, I know, it could be the user, but as more images made by this camera come out, I have to wonder. It's not like the FZ50, where just about any photo I've ever seen taken by it ranged from good to excellent. I'm seeing FZ28 images that could be described as bad, with flower macro shots in the lead as far as lack of sharpness. But as I stated in another thread, maybe I'm just expecting too much from this camera. I really wanted it to have the IQ of the 50, but with a smaller sensor, I guess it just isn't possible.


I'll have to give you, the FZ50 IS a magnificent camera. Shot JPEG, and limiting the range to between ISO's 100-200, you'd have a hard time being happier with what it's capable of. With the fast f2.8-3.7 lens, staying within that narrow ISO range is very possible, even in some pretty low light conditions, for static subjects. The last intensive use I have made of mine was a trip to Paris in September, 2007..

There are a few miscellaneous images in that batch where I had to resort to ISO 400 and I shot those RAW, processing the files in the version of Silkypix that came with the FZ50.

There is one functionality about the FZ28 that sort of disappoints me, and that's related to the AE lock. When I was using the FZ50 in places like the Louvre and inside some of the chateau's during that trip, I would often zoom in close on a portion of the image totake a more precise spotreading, lock it in with the AE lock, zoom back to where I wanted to be to take the picture and shoot. With the FZ28, if you zoom in to take a reading and use the AE lock, the moment you try to zoom back, the AE lock is released so you cannot use the AE lock with the FZ28 like you can with the FZ50.
