Wrong, wrong, wrong

Oh, come on... don't be fooled by the seemingly outstanding specs. Check out the sample photos in this thread:

Those photos are awful for anything but snapshots and 4x6-inch prints. Horrible noise, painted look, no details. I, too, came here tempted by that 600 mm f2.8 lens, but those photos have turned me off. Apparently the small sensor remains as much of a barrier to decent photos as before. My Canon 7D blows the FZ200 out of the water, even with my relatively cheap and poor Sigma 50-500 lens.

The FZ200 can be a DSLR replacement to the casual shooter only, but definitely not to a serious hobby photographer.
