Thanks Rudy, I think you pretty well nailed the differences. I photograph with other bird photographers on a regular basis and they have big cameras and even bigger lenses. I have seen their and your results. There is no doubt that the images that they get are superior to mine, but as you say, unless you print images to a large size, then there's not a lot of difference in the printed form. On screen they show brilliant detail. One area where the DSLR cameras really shine is in their ability to crop the taken image. They can keep enlarging that shot and each time they do, its still sharp, whereas the smaller sensor can't handle a big crop without losing a lot of quality. That said, I really like the FZ200, its a complete package and for its size and price will do most things very well.

Thanks for your thoughts, will speak to you on Flickr.
