Hello all and welcome to the FZ-10 discovery archive! You’ve either skipped the FZ-1, read it and wanted to read the next chapter, or the FZ-10 just interests you the most! Either of the three is fine. The FZ-10 was a cost reduction model that continued with the Panasonic REAL name until the discontinuation. This unit was also marketed in Japan as the Panasonic REAL II.
