Any Panasonic Lumix TZ100 owners? Would like some opinions/options please.

I currently use my phone to take photos and I would like to get a nice compact to use instead.

Ideally I want something that will give nice closeups for watches, perform well outdoors and will be easy to carry in a fleece or jacket pocket while out walking.

I am pretty clueless about photography and hopefully the camera will allow me to grow with it.

I have read online reviews and the TZ100 seems to fit the bill (£600 max budget); I just wondered if anyone has any hands on with one or have alternatives they could suggest?

G'day Paze

I am a Panny user also ... great choice by you :)

The internals of the TZ100 seem to be very similar -if not identical- to the FZ1000 mk-2 and the FZ-2500, each of which have excellent reviews re: overall performance. The lens is a shorter-zoom version of the above cameras - though all the Leica lenses receive good reviews regarding performance

From my personal experience with the 2500, I would say 'go for it' re- the TZ

Hope this helps
