200 has max shutter at 4000 (good for birds) 28 and 40, not as good. limited to 2000?

This setup is strictly for the "birds".

Note that the FZ200's 1/4000s shutter speed is not available at f/2.8 (where you may need it!) as its leaf shutter cannot traverse the entire lens that quickly

Thanks for that. I did not know. Any opinion about IQ for IQ?
