Re: Panasonic FZ200 or a Nikon D3100 Pack?

If you start with the FZ200 find it lacking in IQ, you could trade up to a DSLR.  If you start with the DSLR and find it lacking or too expensive, stepping down in IQ can be difficult to accept.

Being a beginner, I'd recommend starting with the FZ200.  It may not provide the same image quality as the DSLR, but it will be a lot more fun to use and may be quite adequate for your needs.  It's nice having that single wide-to-tele lens always at the ready.  The fast burst modes and fully articulated LCD are bonuses with the FZ200.
