If you aren't selling your stuff and don't print huge , then optimise for JPEG. If you have time on your hands and want to post process all your stuff (gets to be a PITA after a while) and are into pixel peeping , then shoot raw. (If you underexpose in raw , you will *have* to post process to get a good jpeg , if you shoot correctly exposed , you can shoot raw and jpeg and choose what to PP or if you want to PP)

If you are stressed about noise and feel the small senor is a limit to your photography , then get a DSLR, they more or less the same price as a FZ200....

SUE: I agree with what DoctorG1 said.

The FZ200 is a mixed bag. It is as simple, or as complicated, as you want it to be. I have found JPEG's at -1 Sharp and -1 NR to be quite good. If the noise is to much for you then use Neat Image as a free limited piece of software. Easy to use and you can not beat free (limited version). There are loads of posts regarding this camera and this approach.

I have the FZ200 and print 99% 4x6's. and for the web. Works great for me.

Good luck!
