If you click the "full details" for some of the images...

108mm focal length on the Picasa page is equivalent to the maximum "600" for the camera.

The barbershop picture is 1/40 sec at listed 88mm (approx 500mm equivalent for the camera)
The passerby picture is 1/40 sec at 600 mm equivalent; camera held at my waist

The eyeglasses are 1/13 sec at 400mm (I'm leaning against a lamppost for support)
The picture in the window is 1/60 sec at 600mm

Obviously they weren't all "keepers" at that very slow shutter speed, but my hit rate wasn't bad - and certainly much better than FZ18/28.

Assuming all else the same, the f/2.8 FZ200 lens at full zoom should yield a factor of almost 4 for shutter speed and/or ISO compared to the f/5.2 FZ150 lens. That will be quite remarkable.
