Coming from high end nikion DSLRs I new what to expect. I compared two cameras: Panasonic DMZ-FZ150 and Sony HX-200v
The most annoying freatures of this poorly designed Sony:No thread for filters so lens is unprotectedNo lens hood Quality of 18 MP is worse than Panasonic 12 MPEasy to screw up setting and take sketches instead of pictures in the bright light. Everything through a multi step menu. And the worst: it takes forever: several seconds to take next picture.
So without a second hesitation I returned Sony and kept Panasonic.
