Not to be out done by the likes of
FujiFilm, Panasonic also announced a bunch of
new cameras today:
The five megapixel DMC-FZ5 and four megapixel DMC-FZ4 — These are the latest additions to their line of prosumer FZ cameras. Each sports a 12x optical zoom lens (made by Leica, no less), though only the FZ5 (which is pictured above) gets its LCD bumped up to 1.8-inches.

The five megapixel DMC-LZ2 (pictured above) and four megapixel DMC-LZ1 — Two new compact cameras, each of which has a 6x optical zoom lens, a 2-inch LCD screen, and Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. optical image stabilizer technology. They're also making a lot of noise about how rare it is to have a 6x optical zoom lens on a camera of this size, which is sorta true. Runs on two AA batteries.
