Nice shots but very noisy (particularly the first one). This morning I decided to try something different with my ZS3 to see if I could improve what I call the "Monet" effect on most pictures I've taken so far. I lowered the MP to 7. Boy...what a difference! Images were much much better. They were sharper, cleaner, more details were preserved, no major smudges and...no "Monet" effect! It just proves that this tiny sensors can not handle a high number of MP. Manufacturers should stop these silly gimmicks. I read all the time people saying that "my old such and such camera takes better pictures than my brand new 14 mp". Well, that's one of the reasons why. The old cameras shot at 5/6/8 MP and the sensors, not much smaller than today's sensors - 1/2.5" vs. 1/2.33", could handle them better.
