I didn’t really need this camera, but the sale price was good and I wanted a backup for my Olympus E-P3. It will just take a little time to get used to it and so far I like it! I’ve put about 50 images through it so far and I’m pleased with the quality. The Panasonic software is kind of clunky so I stick with photoshop. One thing to note – this type of camera is lousy for things that move fast. If you’re shooting sports stick with a DSLR.
