Great shots LTZ.

Yep, with good lighting, a good photographer like LTZ can do wonders with these cameras.

Not for birds.

But you can get excellent results for flowers and bugs.

Again, amazing! No wonder your photos convinced me to purchase the FZ40!

Yes you will require a Panasonic DMW-LA5 and the cheapest lens is a TCON17 from Olympus or next in line Panasonic DMW-LT55...

Beautiful pics, LTZ. Another great case for getting a teleconverter. Were these hand-held or tripod?
