FZ200 - FZ50 rated (-3)

http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52339583 To employ a manual lens would create speed and accuracy in composition, as would a front wheel under the shutter dedicated to the instant EV adjustment small sensors demand. To retain a dedicated pad devoid of controls fitting the thumb would assist camera grip and steadying duties.

Nevertheless the FZ200 is so supreme a camera as to have been axed in favour of the FZ70.

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.
