Photographyblog reviews the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ60 (FZ62) and writes;
“The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ62 is an appealing super-zoom bridge camera that does most things very well. The £349.99 / $399.95 launch price is high, but the FZ62 offers enough features, image quality and performance to satisfy anyone looking for an all-in-one, do-it-all camera.”

Digitalcamerainfo reviews the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ60 (FZ62) and writes;
“For the model that’s the lesser of Panasonic’s two new FZ-series superzooms, the FZ60 is a pretty impressive camera. It doesn’t match the zoom range of the class-leading ultrazooms anymore, but it does seem to offer solid image quality, based on our brief time with it. We’ll know more when we can give it a proper lab test. It also provides deeper controls than we’re used to seeing at this price, which is always a welcome surprise.”

“There are a lot of pros and cons to weigh up, but when you’re done comparing all the specifications and weighing up the various pros and cons one thing stands out: in terms of the features it offers for the price, the FZ60 / FZ60 is currently one of the lowest cost, best value super-zooms on the market. That, combined with fact that it also produces great quality images and excels in low light earns it a Recommended rating.”
