Probably the best combination size/image quality camera ever made and plus is 4k recording
Seems to be an ex display model. Missed that at first. Panasonic outlet have been selling refurbished black ones for £280 (one available atm) which I thought was good (they get picked up quickly).
Main criticism that crops up for this camera is the EVF not quite the best among current offerings (sometimes issues with "tearing" of the image in low light and when panning). But so much else is really top notch for this price range.
Good spot. Heat.
Jessops have new black version with this mini wide zoom and the 25mm f1.7 for under £400 which may be worth a shout too.

I have this one given a deal on here a good while ago from Brilly
I have the two pack lens 12-32mm + 35-100mm Lenses
The only think I dont like is that you have to switch lenses a lot....and the zoom is not great even on the zoom lens (by that I mean for the hassle of switching lenses you still cant zoom in that far)
Can anyone recommend a lens for this camera that wouldnt need constant witching and then I may see about ebaying the other
Thanks

It depends what your snapping.
If its relatively motionless targets or outside in sunny weather the 14-140 for wide ability or the 45-200 if you can get away with 45 at the wide side . The 100-300 is big, heavy and 100mm seriously limits how close you can be.
If you need some shutter speed youll have to compromise and the F2.8 lens's are best there. But in these cases you really have limited choice (physics).

To be honest, I think you might be better served with a bridge camera. Put simply, you can't get one lens with the range that you might have experienced with a point and shoot. The benefits of using an interchangeable lens system is just that - being able to change the lens to have the right one for the right scenario.

Yes, you can get a lens that does most things to a reasonable level, but so will a bridge camera. By the sounds of it, I'd sell your existing glass and buy the 14-140 and maybe later, the 20mm 1.7.
