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.

"Ridiculous!"

The camera is fast, sharp, and most important to me - light. Let me talk about them briefly. The Sony is a great light weight mirrorless camera. The second problem is the focusing controls. So I bought this for my California vacation.
