    Wo, no viewfinder?

    First I heard of this this model was in Digital Photo mag and my first reaction was WOW! I have been looking to upgrade my ageing FZ38 for a newer model for several months and though this was the answer but without a viewfinder – optical or electronic – it is a model I shall be avoiding.

    Whilst I have found Panasonic cameras to be some of the best on the market and I respect them as a brand but trying to hold a superzoom camera at arms length, unbraced and unsupported in any way is the huge put-off.

    So, sorry guys, I shall be looking at another model in the range or (horror of horrors) looking at other brands. If removing viewfinders is to be the trend for Panasonic bridge cameras my future purchases will definitely be going to another maker.
