Long live the FZ!
4 months ago
I was walking around on the last day of my vacation and sold nice fella on the FZ200. Guy had a Canon T3i with 4 lens(one of them being that nifty 50 everyone talks about pft). He was really impressed how my FZ150 starts at a wide and clean 25mm and goes up to clean 600mm with one lens. Then I told him the FZ200 is at a constant f2.8 and called me a liar, until I showed them the Panasonic website. He said he, and I quote "just holding your camera these few seconds has me sold, it feels that good." And then I turned the camera on for him and was blown away at the IQ, even at low ISO. He didn't realize a camera like this could exist and isn't a DSLC.
I also walked by a local camera shop earlier out of chance. I didn't walk in, as I know if I did I may walk away with an FZ200 or two, or get kicked out for telling the truth about Panasonic's other cameras.
