It'd be a pretty big step backwards to try to position this as the "upgrade" to the FZ200.

FZ200 has a Leica lens and Leica label on the camera body; the FZ70 just says 'Lumix'.

Super long, slow zooms are nothing more than party tricks. You're not likely to get many - or any - photos that would be worthy other than for how far away the subject was.

FZ70 still has the "L" - and I've always assumed that meant "Leica" and not "Lumix".

It's still an impressive piece of glass - The objective is as large as the FZ200's.
