  1. I've been fairly happy with my TZ1 though seeing the features in the
    TZ2 and TZ3 it makes me wonder if I should have waited. Still - having
    toasted my old Minolta in a sudden rainstorm and being without a

    zoom is really a non-starter IMHO.

    The GX100 is a much better idea with its 24-72mm lens. When you consider
    that DSLR kit lenses usually only go down to 28mm, and that the cost of
    buying a super-wide zoom for them may double the price of the outfit, the
    GX100 begins to look pretty attractive for anyone doing wideangle work, the
    only drawbacks being the sensor size and the rather modest telephoto end.

    Thanks for the followup. I guess it would be a poor value even if
