Comment:

With a minuscule 18MP sensor and 20x optics, they probably have to use every trick in the book to process the image – so enabling RAW might not be as worthwhile as it sounds.

It’s a bit pointless anyway – if you’re that bothered about ultimate quality, a tiny sensored super zoom is probably not your tool of choice, and it’s less effort to just ‘resort’ to dial in -2/3 EV on the day you buy it (as with all compacts). If the auto white balance is good (i.e. improved over older Panasonic compacts), drastic image changes shouldn’t be necessary anyway, and minor adjustments can be made to a JPEG just fine.

Comment:

I need Pana to include manual or semi manual focus. It is helpful for taking photo via a dirty mirror in some places.

Maybe, the reason for no raw is that the slow processing time to record all data to the memory and memory issue. I see one from Fujifilm having a limit on RAW function to 8 mega pixels. I quite believe that it is possible to produce a small sensor with a better quality. In the past, people said that no way to produce MOS IC with a MOS transistor at a size less than 5 micron. No indirect band gap semiconductor device is able to emit visible light.

Today, 5 micron is too large and the emition of visible light of silicon seems to be possible.

I have a TZ 40 and I don’t like the photos it takes they are fuzzy and out of focus. my Tz 20 takes much better photos you just point and shoot and the photos are great .I wouldn’t recommend the TZ 40 at all very disappointed with this camera.

Sounds like you don’t know how to work your camera, and you’ve set the ISO too high. I highly doubt the sensor has changed much between those models.

Comment:

RAW on a compact is absolutely pointless as 99.9% of users will have no use for it whatsoever. Good on Panasonic to not try to cram pro specs into an entry level camera. High qual jpeg is perfectly fine most of the time anyway.

Um, clean the mirror? What are you taking pictures in the mirror for anyway…
