Panasonic Lumix CM1
While the Panasonic Lumix CM1 is undeniably pricey and bulky, its wealth of photography kit helps it achieve image quality that's unrivalled in the smartphone world. If you love the idea of always having a great camera to hand but don't want to be weighed down with two devices, the Lumix CM1 is the phone for you.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 ( with 14-42mm lens, White)
With capable, speedy performance, and a friendly but powerful interface, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 is a good choice for people looking to upgrade from a point-and-shoot.
Pricing not available
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS4 ( Orange)
While it doesn't offer much for upgraders, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS4 is still a very good rugged camera.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 ( Silver)
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20's 20x zoom lens might be the main attraction, but the camera is all-around excellent.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ47
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ47 is a very good megazoom for the money, but if you want more control over results--especially in low light--you'll want to step up to the Lumix FZ150.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 ( with 14-42mm lens, Black)
A well-designed camera with an interface that creative photographers can customize to their liking, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1 deserves serious consideration if you're looking for a modestly compact interchangeable-lens model.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3X ( with 14-42mm PZ lens, Red)
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 offers the type of performance and photo quality in a relatively small design many point-and-shoot graduates will like.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH25 ( Black)
Simple and satisfying, Panasonic's Lumix DMC-FH25 is an excellent point-and-shoot value.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 ( with 14-42mm lens, Black)
If you're looking for a camera that's not quite as big as a dSLR but doesn't skimp on hardware controls or features like an articulated LCD, EVF and stereo full HD video, the G3 is one of my top options. But performance is hit-and-miss for shooting action, so you may end up having to go with something just a bit bigger, anyway.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 ( Silver)
GPS and fast shooting performance make the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 a worthy rugged point-and-shoot even if its photos and videos aren't the sharpest.
