Re: Noise in FZ200 Pictures, how bad is it?

I was also concerned with the noise reported in the reviews. I tried both the SX50 and FZ200 - took same photos with both and compared them. Couldn't really see a major difference with my eyes.

That said I bought the FZ200 mainly because I didn't need the extra zoom reach of the SX50 and I liked the f2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range on the FZ200.

I have taken photos as high as ISO 800 with the FZ200 with very acceptable noise AND if you put it through a noise reduction program it even gets better. I would not worry about the noise unless you want to shoot at ISO 1600 or above - that's where I think the noise becomes unacceptable.
