FZ200 vs Nikon D5100/D90
9 months ago

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a FZ200 and did some testing with it today. I was pleased with the macro/normal range of the camera in high light settings, but was a little disappointed at full zoom in the shade (aka low light). My question is whether a D5100/D90 with a 300mm lens and some digital zoom would equal the FZ200 at the 600mm equivalence? My main use of the camera will be nature shots outside during the day, but I also want the camera to be able to take some starry night shots. I also own a D70, so I didn't know if the starry night shots would be comparable to a D5100/D90.

Thanks. I also attached some pics I took today.
