This has only happened once so maybe I have no reason to be concerned, but at one point the zoom on the FZ 200 did not respond to either zoom control.  I shut down the camera and then it was fine.

Has this happened to anyone else? Has anyone had a FZ 200 where the  zoom stopped "zooming"?

OTOH, is there a setting where the zoom is disabled? Maybe this was user error as I am just getting to know the camera.

Thanks for your reponses.


There is a setting to turn the Side Lever switch to focus rather than zoom, but the zoom control around the shutter button should always zoom the lens.

As noted, perhaps the camera was asleep?  If it happens again, try pressing the shutter button half-way to wake the camera and see if the zoom functionality returns.

You learn something new every time you press the shutter


Great, thanks for the responses.
