Panasonic LUMIX FZ200 Black 12.1 MP 24X Optical Zoom 25mm Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output
  • 1/2.3" MOS 12.1 MP
  • 24X Optical Zoom
  • 25mm Wide Angle
  • Optical (Power O.I.S. (On with Active Mode(only for Video) / Off))
  • 3.0" 460K LCD
  • 1920 x 1080
  • 540 pictures

Pros:

Great zoom range from 25mm (35mm film equivalent) wide-angle to 600mm telephoto. Lens sharpness is great throughout range. Lots of creative features. Battery has really good life. Accepts 52mm filters!

Cons:

Manual focus with the electrical slider switch on the side of the lens is a little tricky. I would have preferred a mechanical focus ring like on my older Lumix FZ20K. Also slider switch can be set to adjust zoom or focus. It would be better to have an option to for it to be a zoom control when taking video and a focus control when taking still photos.

Other Thoughts:

I purchased this camera as an upgrade to my Lumix FZ20K (5MP, 12x zoom), which I have owned for 7+ years. Like the FZ20K the FZ200 maintains a fast F2.8 throughout its zoom range, only this new one is has a 24X zoom at 12MP. The FZ20K has been a great camera, so I am hoping the FZ200 proves to be as durable.
