Are you forgetting the 1.6X factor a D-SLR will have, with an APS-size sensor?

That's it
400mm x 1.6 = 640mm

I won't post the images as the 50D 400 5.6 shot was taken years ago
so I can't match the light conditions or exact shooting location.

I can say the FZ200 gives the dSLR setup a run for the money but comes up somewhat short on detail and color/contrast at least in the samples I have.

Still have not found a reason not to keep the FZ200 ...
