With thanks to Silverwolf!

This beats my recent Jessops posting and is available to collect from store at this price if ordered on line (so sort of high street price). Still £289.99 at Play. At bit less at Dabs but plus shipping?

A fabulous follow up to the highly acclaimed TZ5 from Panasonic, definately a cut or two above the average consumer camera brand. Reviewers rave about it - 9/10 in this review:

Full specs on the Comet link but I'm not convinced it's all accurate - I would go with those on the review site.

Thanks.

Yep, maybe but if you want the speed, convenience and reassurance of collecting from store today I don't think you can beat this price. Easier for return too if necessary. For less than £4 difference (about 1.5%) I'd go the Comet route, though I appreciate that may not be everyone's choice.

Easier to return???

I have had Amazon products go wrong on day 30 and they have exchanged or refunded.

I've had Comet products go wrong within two weeks and had to argue over a refund or exchange.

Not flaming, just pointing out that if you buy from Amazon, you can return the item, hassle free, within 7 days under the distance selling act. :thumbsup:

Understood and don't disagree, but if you have a Comet nearby it's a lot easier than packing item and queuing at the Post Office and then waiting. Not criticising Amazon service but if it's faulty you can get an instant new one out of Comet (subject to their stock and your attitude). Yes, I've experienced the need to explain my legal rights to Comet (probably because they get ripped off by many returning their goods) but I've always succeeded before leaving the store.

been tempted with one of these but still can`t decided good price though

Reviews are dreadful! If it was my money I think I'd spend it somewhere I could trust. Also you'd want to know if it's UK stock with correct charger, etc. and full UK/European warranty. I like the idea of picking one up from my Comet store.

Sorely tempted after reading the reviews but can't really justify it as I have a 6 month old TZ5 (which is great). Can't say that I'd use the HD video either.

The TZ5 is universally praised in the reviews and by users. I love mine. Try this for example:

trustedreviews.com/dig…/p1

Don't rule out the TZ4 either (almost the same camera, slightly smaller screen and 8Mp rather than 9Mp, which is plenty) but as they are both now old models (replaced by TZ7 and TZ6) you may have some trouble finding one. My TZ5 was £146 at Jessops just before Christmas but prices went back up afterwards. If you can find a new TZ5 for £150ish (or a TZ4 for £100ish) go for it - you won't be disappointed.

Just one thing to be aware of though if you haven't seen/handled them - they're not quite 'pocket sized'. Not bulky but if you really want something just to slip in your pocket and forget about on a day out they are a bit bigger than you might choose. That's the price you pay for an excellent 10x zoom lens.

i have just ordered my lumix tz7 so fingers crossed its is as good as people say!

Was in Currys today and they had a TZ65. You can find it on currys.co.uk, search for TZ65 or product code 286266.

I have listed a deal on HUKD from Pixmania for this strange model:

Sq.

Don't forget the 3.5% cashback via TopCashBack, which brings the price down to £265.37.

For anyone looking for a ideal case for this camera (TZ7 or TZ65 or same body size) then this is perfect in size : caselogic.com/med…821

Cheapest price unknown, but i needed one in a hurry and got it from currys, most likely that was a fiver too high.

Point is, its a good case with pockets for battery and cards, ideal for travel. I used to be solidly for lowepro REZO 30 and 20 cases, which are still superior in my view, but none of them fit this camera size. The caselogic one does perfectly.

Don't forget the 3% off voucher!

Bought mine last night for £266.74 from Comet
