Re: Oh so very tempting.

I'm a canon user too, but have steered clear of bridge cameras since the Canon S2 IS. I currently own a 5d mk2, 50D, G10, olympus e-620, and have dabbled in the pens here and there.

The FZ200 is the first bridge cam to make me reconsider bridge cameras. I hear your points regarding the perceptibly 'slight' advantages of the F/2.8 lens & shooting at lower ISO's and faster shutter speeds- but to me , with this kind of camera those advantages are amplified because of the tiny sensor. Its really great to see newer cams like this handling noise better than ever, but I still would hesitate to use higher ISO's over shallow DOF , if there was the option.

I'm looking forward to reviews and the next model as well- I agree with your first post- its an amazing accomplishment to fit an constant F/2.8 lens into a modern bridge camcorder. Hopefully this will set a new benchmark.
