You speak with great passion and conviction about your panasonic. I know of at least one other that's equally passionate who's conspicuously absent. What's lacking in you FZ200 AND the FZ150 in my opinion, is the lack of tonal depth. It's like I'm looking at a 4 bit photo. While the shots ARE sharp and crisp.... they lack tonal depth (in my opinion). It's as if the processing engines skip several shades of a particular color when going from bright to the shadows. ... again... my opinion. While I critique the HS series for lack of tack sharp glass ... a lot can be said about how well they produce tones... and tone graduations.

My 2 cents.

Definitely some white balance issues here, lots of shade in the foreground, it would be tough to be sure whether this looked real no matter how it was tweaked. But it was posted as an example photo and it's fair game for picking apart.

You don't TAKE a photo, you MAKE a photo.

I think the camera has handled the very awkward light, color and shadow in a very convincing way, you can see details in both shadow and sunlight and the image is very sharp.

We should actually be comparing cameras of equivalent long range focal lengths- that is, this should be about Fuji HS50 vs Canon HX50 vs Nikon P510/520 vs Sony HX300. The Panny and X-S1 shouldn't be considered in the same category.

There you go again...with all that rationality.  Such an approach will never fly here.

It's up to each one to determine if there is enough 24x zoom and the ability to TC or 40x to 50x zoom is a must.
As I see it outweighs the strength of aperture f/2.8 more than well the shorter zoom.

Re: For Michi and others who have the HS50
In reply to PAUL TILL, Mar 17, 2013

Could you kindly test L size DR 400 vs M size DR 400 with the HS50, now with the HS20 I have been getting consistently better highlight retention with L size DR 400 rather than the latter, more commonly acclaimed M size DR 400. Also, as far as higher ISO differences between the two resolutions, I know people say M size is better, but when I resize both M and L size to 1600 x 1200 I cant see a difference, even at ISO 3200- they look almost exactly alike, it's just that L size seems to retain highlights better than M size for some reason (at DR 400). NR should be set to Low and Sharpening to Soft.

Basically I did L size DR 400 ISO 3200 vs M size DR 400 ISO 3200 NR Low Sharpening Soft and found that L size DR 400 held highlights better and there was virtually no noise difference when both were resized to 1600 x 1200 (which matches the dot pitch of 7.5 x 10 prints.)
