Quite a difference. Maybe not that surprising considering that the FZ200 at f/8 has the same DoF and diffraction as a 12mp FF camera has at f/45 (wish that my SX50 was a bit faster than f/6.5 at the long end).

I agree that's quite a difference.  The constant f/2.8 lens of the FZ200 is often lauded for its ability to keep shutter speeds up and/or ISO down at telephoto, but it also affords the use of wider apertures above the diffraction limit rather than forcing stopping down  - something I haven't seen noted in its favor before.
