Re: Nikon D7100 - Six months after joining the "Dark Side"

Good to hear from you Rudy.

Had Panasonic continued developing the FZ200 they would see the dawn of the small sensor supercamera. But there is a commercial force that caps superzoom quality. All manufacturers seem to comply with this rule, however it is governed.

Your observations demonstrate that the F200 commands very high quality for a  price. In truth it would be easy to keep upgrading the constant aperture to ever better image quality and maybe slightly improved constant aperture. Image quality for these types of camera would then reach the wider buying public, and its sales would rocket; based on that value alone.

Thank you for putting the differences in perspective.

The FZ50: DSLR handling of a bright, non-extending Leica 35-420mm F2.8-3.7 lens. I live in hope that Mr Ichiro Kitao, Mr Michiharu Uematsu and Mr Yoshiyuki Inoue have triggered the update to the FZ50. Please update the FZ50. It is unique and users of it cannot update without compromise of one or more of its combination of features. Full tribute here: . Performace diagram here:
