    1/1.63-inch CCD is still a small sensor!

    Panasonic don't have the sensor technology to make a decent 4/3 sensor.
    How are they going to get it right with a FF one?

    Put a 0.3mm focal length on it, and you don't need a viewfinder - just
    point it in the general direction of your subject, and crop it later :D

    Scroll down for the optional rangefinder attachment.

    Now your sensor is *really* small.

    Well, it appears to be the first since the Nikon 8400 to have a 24 mm
    equivalent wide angle. This camera, after it comes out, could very easily
    depress the high used prices that the Nikon 8400 gets (due to its
    desirability among real estate appraisers and the like).

    A 1/1.63" sensor is now considered FF? Huh?

    No telephoto? Forget it. Also, I love Panny's consistency; bragging about
    their new low-noise LX3 and then producing the FZ28, with 10.1MP on a
    1/2.33" sensor? Right...

    I'll wait for the results, but a sensor that small with that many pixels
    doesn't look good.

    It has an optical viewfinder, but it is an add-on purchase. It has quite
    large sensor for a compact zoom camera.

    They have been making P&S that are not crap for years, it the
    photographer that matters.

    Is the add-on viewfinder coupled to the camera's electronics?

    IMHO - this post is B.S. I have a Kodak P850 - a P&S with long zoom which
    I do not consider "a piece of crap". I do quite well with it thank you.

    And knowing Panasonics noise leading slow as molases sensors I would
    not wait in line for this one. But this guy just doesnt know how to
    use a camera to get its full potential.

    Their cameras (like Sony's DSLRs) have always lead the pack when it
    comes to resolution, and not megapixel count, real resolution.

    Superzooms are in their own class, and that class is LOW!

    Pixel counts can't be helped, it's lots or die on the marketing vine.

    Probably not. Nor does it have a built-in MP3 player and phone...

    Noise leading because they don't heap on the NR at 100 ISO like nearly
    every other camera that doesn't do raw, I frigging HATE that in P&Ss,
    it renders their images completely useless.

    I dont know what camera you use, it must be some 35$ toy, my 2 old 5
    and 7 mp sonys dont have that issue, Panasonic is known for excessive
    noise and NR with all but Iso 100 being their only usable settings,
    and if I remember dpreviews Panasonic reviews at Iso 100 their NR was
    visable. Still if you cant get a good photo its you not understanding
    a cameras optimal settings.
