Comparison between seven different digital `high'-zoom cameras -- a babelfish translation of the original Japanese

Stablised digital cameras comparison -- Popular Photography and Imaging

DCMag.co.uk review -- a concise, but reasonably balanced, `pros and cons' review.

Pete's ultrazoom shootout -- Peter Martin compares the FZ10 to an Olympus C-720.

Self-portrait of Pete with FZ10. Link to his photography web-page

PCMag comparison -- another `superzoom' comparison. Not as thorough as the Japanese comparison review above.

Optical resolution comparison against Canon Powershot S1, Fuji S5000 and Konica-Minolta Z10 -- by dpreview

CNET review -- some people would question the credibility of the CNET review (which is not on a specialist photography website). For example, tko (dpreview, Panasonic forum, 28 February 2004) wrote...

...those people are idiots

``Unfortunately, the FZ10's image quality is disappointing. It's generally acceptable but not great. Indoor exposures are OK, but clipping in highlights is really pronounced in outdoor shots; to compensate, we suggest springing for the optional neutral-density filter (DMW-LND72). That should also take care of much of the fringing we saw; overbright edges tend to exacerbate its appearance.''

That blows any credibility, since a neutral density filter won't change the exposure one whit. Setting the EV {exposure value} to -1/3 or 2/3 will help, as everyone on this forum knows.
