. . . . . . . How is the Tele-macro on the FZ200?

At the 600mm telephoto end.

Thanks - that surprises me, I thought that it might be available on a larger part of the upper zoom range, e.g. 16x-24x or something.

. . . . . . . . . . is the view discontinuous with "view freeze"?

And would you use AF-C for this, especially if the dog is running partly towards you?


You'd need to switch off preview so as to minimise any view freeze but it's not going to be as good as a dSRL; the FZ200 with more pixels in the EVF has been reported to slow on refresh.

By "preview" you mean the auto review?  OK, but I thought that burst mode would switch the auto review function off automatically, as there would be no time for it.  But I may be wrong.

"Slow on refresh" . . . sounds like this EVF may be no better or worse, for burst mode panning, than other EVFs, then.  I'll see if I can find an FZ200 with a charged battery in a shop, and try it myself.

Thanks for your comments.
