Successor to the fantastic TZ4 and widely acknowledged (along with its TZ7 sister at £247.20) to be one of the best cameras in its sector. Amazingly compact for a 12x zoom with excellent lens. Prices are continuing to fall and are now firmly under £200 in the right places. This camera has been posted on HUKD recently for a little less but not from a reputable UK dealer. The posted price is for ordering on line and collecting at store though I have found that store staff will match their on line prices anyway. So, you can pick it up in-store tomorrow and have no worries about the current shipping problems due to Royal Mail dispute.
If you are looking for a really great camera under £200 this one really has to be top of your list.
