What I miss from the FZ150:
  • the looooong end of the zoom where I could catch every bird/animal I wanted in nature
  • the very useful macro where in the G6 is simply non existent.

What do you think? Am I doing something wrong? Should I just give it more time?


If you get a macro lens for the G6 I bet you'd be blown away. Then the lens collection starts to grow. But nothing will beat a superzoom for all-in-one convenience and long reach and I'm tempted by the new breed of superzooms myself, even though they are fairly large. My first encounter with an interchangeable lens camera (DSLR) was a let down for a few reasons:

1) poor kit lenses

2) inability to do close-up macros without spending more

3) size / weight

4) dust in viewfinder that developed later (how did it get there?)

And I still dislike changing lenses (I tend to have different lenses on different cameras instead). But if you want better quality at the cost of convenience, they are well worthwhile. Though they will probably demand more money from you.
