From what I have been seeing, FZ200 is actually capable of background defocus. Should have stepped back a few meters, zoom to 400 or even more and opt for f2.8. You would have gotten blurred background.

In order to avoid this painful post processing, people are eventually drawn to larger sensors. Some venture into m43 world and buy some f1.8 lenses. Some even go full frame.

Sorry, just noticed your camera is FZ70. So, no f2.8 available to you. Still, zooming to 400mm or so and keeping fastest aperture possible would have helped.
