LZ40 or FZ70 for birds in flight?
9 months ago

I'm considering buying either the DMC-LZ40 or the DMC-FZ70 or replace my DMC-FZ200. I especially like the FZ200's ability to capture birds 75-150 yards away in relatively low light conditions. I often set f2.8 Aperture Priority at max 600mm zoom. I know there are several factors to consider. I also like to take videos at f2.8. Any info or opinion is greatly appreciated.
