Hi Tammie, you multiply the zoom number by 25. For example, if the camera has 20x zoom, that's equal to 500mm focal length.

Re: Panasonic Lumix FZ200

Glad someone asked that question, and thank you Rodger for answering!  I wish Panasonic put FL markings on the lens barrel.  Even better would have been actual FL in the EVF.  Maybe in a future firmware update?  I can't imagine that's on Panasonic's radar, but we can hope

You should probably also mention that we're talking 35mm equivalent focal lengths here, and not actual focal lengths.
