Just got it last night and took some quick shot this morning outside. Just tested out a couple of the modes like macro and Pan mode. Pretty pleased so far. The photos are unaltered other than resized for the host server.

Looks like you're having fun with your versatile FZ, which is what they're good at. Enjoy!

I am very pleased with the camera...its very intuative and easy to navigate the controls......just waiting to see how it handles certain lighting conditions....mid-day and such.

Unfortunately The host will only let me upload 250k max. If you have a host that will let me upload larger pics let me know, or I can email you the original if you would like.

Waiting on my Sunpak polarized filter in the mail.

No wonder you're pleased. Those are really great images :) Have you been photographing long? Those images really are a sensational advert for the camera.

Thanks for the comments. I have been taking photos since July of 2002 when I bought my Nikon Coolpix 2500. I pushed the little Nikon as far as it would go and the nav. button is worn out. Now I hope to max out the potential of this camera. Most of my shots are out of my kayak on the saltwater We will have to see how it holds up.

NICE SHOTS!!!!!

Are filters necessary for a beginner like me?! OR should I wait before I spend all that money?!

Kanni,
I would say the main reason to get at least a UV filter would be to protect the actual lense from dust and finger prints. I am out on the water alot so I wanted a Polarized filter for less glare on the water. Basic filters are not alot of money. I bought a Sunpak Polarized circular filter on ebay for $12 shipped. You should be able to find a combo Polarized/UV filter for around $20 shipped on ebay or on the net.

Good luck,
PG
