Re: FZ35 vs. FZ200

I've owned both. IMHO, the FZ200 is a far superior camera to use vs. the FZ35. Faster, better in lower (not low) light. And fun to use. The lens is amazing. For your trip, I'd pick the FZ200 no question, even though it is larger.

BUT, in its range, and in good light, in MY opinion, the FZ35 can produce good images with less fuss. Check around this forum for settings suggestions, especially if you're a JPEG shooter.

A word of warning, however: Don't overuse the zoom. 600mm is seductive, but at full zoom, the atmospherics can destroy images like crazy (haze, heat, etc.). I found that in my own trip to the southwest.

The other point is to keep either camera at ISO 100 as much as possible and consider shooting at -1/3EV to minimize blown highlights.

Whichever you choose, enjoy!
