FZ200, Extended zoom?
Jul 20, 2013

I've got what I feel is a fairly simple question.  Surprisingly, I haven't been able to find the answer yet either in these forums or with a web search.

I've become familiar with Panasonic superzoom/bridge cameras, having first owned an FZ18 and currently a FZ35.  I'm exploring the possibility of upgrading again, either to the FZ200 or to its successor (possibly due out this week?).

My question pertains to sacrificing resolution to gain extra (or "extended") optical zoom, which is most often acceptable for my type of amateur shooting.  For instance, my FZ35 will reach all the way to 35x if I choose to drop the resolution far enough.

What is the equivalent zoom factor for the FZ200?  I know it's listed as 24x, but if I'm understanding correctly that's at the full 12 MP.  And I'm assuming the FZ200 has the same capability to trade resolution for zoom.
