Their just is not much trafffic here anymore, but

Myself I am tired of cute little cameras that take what Panasonic thinks is a nice photo (Venus 4 ....Venus HD)......the photos do not appeal to me. Well I have not seen any Venus HD photos but I am sure its more of the same....

And they need to shove a few more scene modes in there......(perhaps they should get one or two to work and forget the rest.) do they think anyone could remeber 16 modes and how they focus and meter?

And if it doesn't have 30 MegaPixel's how could it be any good.

I think I will just wait for a 40mp version with a Venus HD XXX processor

The truth.. The only major lesson learned over time is to include serious wide-angle. My greatest wish is a better exposure bracket; They have it on the G1 thankfully (2 EV steps), but why not the small ones? 100 options but not the usefull ones..

I can see why there is interest.

Specs on paper look good.. 25-300mm in a small package.. can come handy as a 1st camera or for dSLR owners who choose a pocket camera for long reach rather than buying a huge and expensive zoom

Very funny and I see your point(s). I also would have loved them to concentrate on IQ and serious photographic user control instead of bobo's marketing and pixel racing. However, the truth is that the TZ range is the best pocketable mega-zoom there is and their continuing development and growing market share is forcing the competition to try their best, which is a good thing for all of us. Now we have a growing choice in this segment. Notice the Samsung Wb500 (Hz10w), the even smaller Olympus mju 9000, the Canon sx110is and the Sony (which I can't remeber name and number now).
