Amazing. Another generation (3rd) after the TZ7 and they still aren't as good. The 10MP 1/2.3" CCD sensor in the TZ7 performs extremely well. Maybe too well as it wasn't on sale very long before they replaced it with the rubbish TZ10 (then TZ20 and now TZ30).

I have to diagree, as a previous TZ7 owner and now currently a TZ10 owner I find the TZ10 every bit as good in terms of image quality as the TZ7. In fact in good light it is argueably better.
