Impressive images...

That combo (FZ200 + E17ED) works quite well. Nice sharp detail in the feathers. Great job with great gear. I looked at your other recent images too.

I thnik that I need to look into this gear some more.

How do you like their service?

Thanks for posting.

Gorgeous images, I especially like the owl, tons of character and the composition totally works.

Re: Impressive images...

well I can thankfully say I have 0 experience with their service, nothing has gone wrong, this is my first panasonic cam, I have had it for ~9 months.

I have no DSLR experience, so this is my one and only set up, but too me the V1,2 make sense if you have the lenses already.

there are some quirks that could annoy coming 'down' to a superzoom, the autofocus is 'fast' but dealing with some closer small birds say with in 10 meters, it needs to be in a macro focus mode with the TC, that does slow it down a bit at first as it hunts, once correctly focused it fast to make small adjustments.

THanks though appreciate the comments
