Has anyone done any action shots with the FZ200?
Aug 27, 2012

What I'm thinking is for my grandkids ice hockey and soccer. Rinks are not all that well lighted, and the action is very fast and hard to follow. Worse than soccer. I have tried my FZ150 with marginal results; but the faster lens on the FZ200 might do the trick. The oldest girl is playing on a Division 1 college team; but the younger ones are local, and a lot slower paced - for now.

The FZ150 works fine for outdoor soccer.

I have a Canon 60D I've been using for hockey with a couple of slower zooms. Results have been good; but I'd much prefer to use a smaller and lighter camera.
