Panasonic DC-FZ80K Final Thoughts

"Love this guy."

It is light and easy to carry with you. Only gripes are slow focus and short battery life. Mirrorless has come into it's own. The Panasonic DC-FZ80K was with me at all times. I will be upgrading to a better lens when finances allow.

"The tripod."

The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill. Even the focus lock button on Canon lenses can be customized. The kit lenses in the bundle are more than adequate. Camera takes beautiful pictures. More megapixels would be nice too when cropping BIFs.
