Why It's CoolGenerally speaking, the more you zoom, the less light you pull into the barrel. But Panasonic teamed up with Leica to get fab glass and the equivalent of a 35-420mm lens with a bright f/2.8 rating throughout the range. Translation: tripod-free, full-zoom shots in low-light conditions. » Action pics are also easier to nail, because the four-megapixel FZ10 uses a stabilization technology to minimize hand-shake. » Fix a subject in your sights—like a friend surfing—and lean on the shutter; a killer autofocus system will keep her tack-sharp.

Hmmm . . .At four megapixels, most non-zoomed shots were tight and clear, but we can say the same of the Pentax Optio S4, which weighs one-fifth of this puppy.

*Expect to pay less than MSRP at your local shop.
