Re: FZ200. How Many FZ150 Users will upgrade?

I think IQ has to be significantly better for me to consider upgrading.

I'm not familiar with the benefits of a constant maximum aperture lens - having never owned a camera with one. Would you expect outdoor daytime IQ to be significantly better than the FZ150??

I am very happy with the FZ150 IQ and take over 95% images at ISO 400 or less. At extreme telephoto, I would say 19 out of 20 pics are sharp (would only use in good light).

Even in moderate light (e.g. inside a cathedral during the day - night time as such does not interest me), I can use shutter priority to shoot at 1/6 sec at wide angle and up to 1/15 sec as I zoom in (maybe up to 10x indoors), and find that ISO is kept at or under ISO 640 (for wide angle at ISO 400 or less, often getting ISO 100) and I get no blur.

Correct me if I'm wrong, it would appear that the FZ200 should perform better in low light (due to the availability of F2.8 at all focal lengths)??
