Just for Tullio-

Here is the same photo set-up, but this time I took the photo with the Pansonic FZ-50, instead of the FZ-28. Notice how similiar the two images are.

I'm not sure why but I haven't received any email notification from Steve's forums lately, reason why I haven't commented on the latest photos.

Great series with the W300, Wirraway. It appears to be a very capable little camera. The Seagull shot is particularly good, with good DR and lots of details.

I liked the clock close up picture, Justaman. Good exposure.

Angel, I think the F707, F717, F828 and R1 are probably some of the best P&S cameras ever made. They are timeless. I will never sell my R1...ever!

Cyber, the B&W image is awesome. I assume you took it with your F828?!? I like your PP.

Sarah, even though this is Sony forum, must say that IMO, the FZ28 produced a better picture than the H50. I think it handled the flash much better (although the H50 did a decent job), the image is sharper and colors are punchier. Now, the FZ28 and FZ50 are similar but I prefer the FZ28 (even though the FZ50 is a much more expensive camera). I still think that when it comes to long zooms, the PanasonicFZ18/FZ28 is the way to go.

Hi Tullio-

I happen to agree completely with you. The future for Panasonic is tied to the FZ18/28 line of cameras. While the Fz-50 is sort of a cult favorite among Panasonic folks, it is an aging camera format, that I do not think will be continued by Panasonic.

I personally prefer the FZ30 over the FZ50. The FZ50 had a bumpy ride in the beginning. However, neither the FZ30 nor the FZ50 compare to the R1 in terms of IQ. Now granted, the Panas have a longer lens but I think they produce noisier images with less resolution. As for the FZ28, I don't have one so I can't say how it compares to the FZ18.

Thanks Tullio for your comments on the W300 shots, still playing with the many settings and combinations that is possible.

My feeble attempt at a flower shot to try the close-up ability.

Wow, that rose shot is beautiful. Perfect, really. Exposure is spot on, colors appear (and I say appear because I can't see the original)to be very natural and accurate. Sharpness is also very good,showing lots of details. The other two images are also good (the cat in particular). Make this camera a 6x optical zoom cam and I'd be buying one right away. It is certainly a very capable little camera but for me, 3x is way too limiting.
