FZ200 First Questions
9 months ago

Hey everyone. I just picked up the FZ200 for what seems like a great deal at B&H. I was looking at micro 4/3rd telephoto lenses for an upcoming trip, and came across the FZ200 and it looks like the perfect solution for a light weight travel camera. So here are my first questions...

1) Is there any way to set up the af/ae lock  button to focus, and turn off the focus on the shutter press? I can do this on my GX1, but the FZ seems to be missing the feature.

2) Can I assign VR on/of to a function button? Again, I think the answer is no.. just want to confirm.

3) What shutter speed do you recommend VR be turned off at. I noticed a few test images at high shutter speed with a double image.

Thanks - Sean
