"On paper at least the LZ5 sounds like a bargain. For your £200 you get a
6-megapixel sensor, a high-quality 6x optical zoom F2.8-4.5 lens, a 2.5in
LCD monitor and optical image stabilisation. On first inspection it looks
good too. Its external design shares the same styling features as the rest
of the Lumix range, with a slightly retro and vaguely art-deco motif.
However whereas most of the other Lumix cameras are slim and elegant, the
LZ5 is a big chunky lump of a thing. At 45mm thick it is a full 2cm thicker
than the stylish LX1 or the lovely new FX01."
