For what it's worth, below are a couple of links to www.seriouscompacts.com that show what the fz200 is capable of at extreme optical and digital zoom.

My wife and I have been visiting Peebles Island for 30+ years. Three times we have seen eagles. Having a camera that I was willing to carry all the time was the key to capturing these shots.

I am tempted by the FZ1000, but my concern is that it won't have the reach (even when cropped) that the FZ200 has.

I would love to see a head-to-head comparison between the FZ200 and FZ1000 at the same target under the same conditions at maximum optical zoom and maximum optical and digital zoom. I performed such a test with the FZ150 and FZ200 and found I got clearer results with the FZ200 even though DXOMark rates the FZ150 as a better sensor. I currently own both the FZ150 and the FZ200.

Cheers, Jock
