Well ... $600 buys the FZ200, arguably an excellent camera in bright light.

$249 buys a G3 at bhphoto, leaving 350 for a lens. Add $50 for the 100-300 at keh right now (ex condition.)

So for $50 more you are taking two bodies and two lenses, and shooting m4/3 sensors, which are both better than the 1/2.3" sensor.

Was just poking around at keh some more and realized that the G3 bodies are as low as 209 ... so you only have to add about 10 bucks to choose the G3 with 100-300 over the FZ200 ....

I'd say that makes it a really tough call ... but, of course, as an only cam the FZ is more versatile than just the G3 and the 100-300. But for someone with the short end covered already ...
