Oh, come on, Ben, where's the fun in that? We're just starting the annual rite of new model bashing. Maybe it's a great camera. Give us a report when you test it out. Maybe there's room for two FZ models--one for the masses and one for the enthusiasts. History has shown, though, that the second-tier/little brother model has been pretty much ignored compared to the flagship version since Panasonic started offering two. Personally, I think it's a confusing strategy that wastes resources.  Panasonic may continue to give us a state of the art model, such as the FZ200, but I'm wondering if they are motivated to do so.
