Customer Review

on June 11, 2014
I like this camera so much, I'm selling my DSLR equipment because I'm not likely to use it much now. With it's versatility of a 25-600mm lens and the ability to maintain the 2.8 aperture throughout the range, this camera allows me to get pretty much any shot I want to get. Still working on it for birds in flight, but I suspect that'll be hit-and-miss much like the DSLR is. I have printed up to 13x19 prints (the largest my printer will support) from shots make with the FZ200, and I'd challenge anyone to identify the size of the sensor they came from.

I used to carry my DSLR with the 100-300 lens for wildlife shots, and my back would hurt by the time I quit. I can carry the FZ200 literally all day, and not feel a thing. And the reach is far greater than any DSLR lens I could afford or would want to carry.

This camera is great for anyone who simply likes to take pictures, though I don't think you'd have any trouble selling shots from it either, as long as you don't try to print a billboard. Shortcomings are well-documented in reviews, so I try to shoot at the base 100 iso when possible and not extend beyond 400, though some test shots I took at 800 looked fine to me, so I wouldn't hesitate to use it if it allowed me to get the shot.

Really nice camera overall, and lots of info on web on how to get the most from it.
