First picture with FZ200 at 600mm 2.8

Just got the camera, charged the battery, and wife too it outside. She wanted to see what a picture looked like at 600mm 2.8. Not bad for her first try and it's my hobbie lol.

And the whiskers are sharp too. Seems better than my old FZ150.

Excellent shot Tom, Your wife did a fine job. It looks like the camera helped also. It is really crisp on the details.

Interesting comparison, one image, the FZ 150, was shot at 100 ISO @ F7.1 and the FZ200 was shot at 320 ISO using F2.8.

yes, and the fz150 was taken at 1/20 second, too slow a speed, too hi in aperture. The effect of noise reduction can seen in the FZ200 shot at iso 320

She did good Paul . I'm happy with the f2.8 results at the long end. The 200 might give better more calm bokeh backgrounds and a little better subject isolation at the long end.

Shooting at max tele with my fz28 sometimes produces strange swirly backgrounds.

Thanks for sharing, best regards.

Impressive images Jay, methinks the FZ200 might be as good as we're hoping it would be. The F2.8 at the longer end will provide some bokeh/blur, when desired, or simply a better shutter speed. The only negative so far is the price, especially here in the UK. I'm estimating a street price of over £400 ($600) when the novelty has worn off and supply caught up with demand (say 9 months from now). The FZ150 is now around £325 and, amazingly, the FZ100 still available at around £290. Stuart

A direct comparison of these two pics causes more disinformation than benefit. These are two radically different shots f2.8 ISO 250 vs. f7.1 1/20s

It's a great comparison, is what people are looking for, to decide to get the FZ150 or FZ200.

What? what? At present, on this side of the pond, the street price for a FZ200 is £380.

Over hear the cheapest to date is £469.

But we have always had to suffer rip-off pricing compared to the far east and the US
