I may have finally found a replacement for my FZ30...

Funny--reading through this I've been thinking about getting mine out again.

The GH1 with 14-140 lens was the FZ30/50 replacement. That said, the long zoom range of the FZ200 tempts me, now that it has a high-res EVF.

The other day when family was at the house (4th of July) my GH1’s batteries were dead, so I went to my old FZ30 for backup. I had charged its batteries recently to do some time lapse pictures so it was ready to go. Man, what a dog! Soooo sloooowww to get a focus lock, especially when trying to get kids running around with fireworks. And I remember being impressed with how much faster it was than my old Olympus 2100, when I first got it. And the EVF showed just a vague representation of the scene. Fortunately I got my GH1 batteries recharged pretty quick.
