8MP successor to the FZ20, the FZ30 adds a non-retracting mechanical zoom lens (which is only operable manually and means start-up time is reduced to roughly 1 second), an increased pixel count on the EVF and LCD, and a manual focus ring (which is electronically linked). Possibly the greatest additions are RAW functionality, two thumb dials to control aperture and exposure timing, and a rotate-and-flip LCD.
Despite a reputation for high noise levels, the DMC-FZ30 is nonetheless at the top end of the 'prosumer', bridge camera range in terms of feature set and lens quality.
