FZ200 - First Superzoom tried that's worth keeping..

Picked up a FZ200 it was the effective 25-600 at a constant 2.8 that had me interested.

IQ at 100% on a standard low dpi computer monitor is lacking
but if you view it's images on a high DPI device like the iPad 3
or resize them to 1080p for HDTV viewing they look great.

At the pixel level it's not going to come close to a Canon 5D II with a 500 f/4 or even with a 400 5.6, but given the simplicity of its size, weight, low cost etc, and that 99% of the time I view photos on the iPad 3 or HDTV, it's a keeper.

Only thing I wish it did is macro / focus closer when zoomed.

Here's quick one at 600, not the best with the over exposure, but beats carrying the other big heavy gear for my uses...

Canon EOS 5D Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200
