I have a FZ15 and I noticed today that I have a small white spot in the EVF. It's in the lower middle of the screen. It's not terrible just a little distracting. Is this normal. I have only had the camera for a day and a few hrs.

I think that's what some people call a"hot pixel"and others call a"stuck pixel"... basically a defect in one pixel of the EVF that leaves that one pixel permanently on. Annoying, but not really a major problem.

If you bought the camera locally, and it really bothers you, take it back and exchange it for a new one.

I take it then, that this is not normal and if I get the company to send me another one it should not have this problem?

I had that exact same problem, but it was blue. I returned it to Circuit City and they gave me a new one.

Thanks Bobc, I'm sending a email out to the company right now.

You can ignore the email I sent you.

I thought there was a disclaimer in the manual that this was normal... I don't think Panasonic are obligated to fix this or replace the camera. I would certainly always try to buy from a shop rather than the internet, and check these things first.
