Fz200 vs GH2 + 100-300mm

Like few other GH2, I've was interested in knowing how FZ200 compares with GH2 + 100-300mm lens. Though they are in different leagues, many GH2 owners have this question in mind whether to get a new lens or to get a new camera.

I started the same quest but couldn't find enough samples to make a decision so I ordered FZ200 but couldn't get hold of 100-300 lens because it's sold out everywhere but luckily I found it at Unique Photo (last one in stock) and it was shipped to me overnight (Excellent customer service).

So far I have only taken few pictures in the backyard but results are mixed. I would have to take more picutres to make a decisio but so far it seems to be too close to call.

If I get a chance to take some more pics tomorrow, I will post them here.
