That FZ200 is very attractive. Especially the constant aperture throughout the zoom range.

But I bought the FZ150 new for $335 during a black friday deal. The FZ200 is almost twice the price. And the FZ200 seems bigger and heavier.

So no, there is no way that such a deal can be economically justified. Especially when in a year I can get the even better FZ250, and another year after that the even more betterer FZ300.

The chasing of features when our photos are no better than before is a waste of hard earned money. It makes the item we lusted over last year simply disposable. We become an ATM to the manufacturers, fanatic consumers to the latest bone they throw at us, convincing ourselves it will make everything better, since our previous love objects are now inadequate and hence undesirable, although neither we nor our friends can see any difference in our pictures. This is a kind of miserable state.

So, no.
