Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS25 Reviews

Cameralabs reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS25 (TZ35) and writes;
“The pricing and feature-set of TZ35 / ZS25 makes sense when compared to Panasonic’s 2013 models and comes Recommended if you don’t need the extras of the TZ40 / ZS30, but it’s well worth keeping an eye on the price of last year’s TZ30 / ZS20 while stocks last. At the time of writing, the TZ30 / ZS20 was discounted to a similar point as the new TZ35 / ZS25 in some regions, yet offered a touch-screen, GPS, 1080p video and faster continuous shooting in addition to the same 20x zoom range.”
