LegacyGT: For anyone else confused by how a single lens camera can capture a 360 view.
I did the extra investigation and discover this camera has a 220 degree FOV wide angle lens that is designed to be pointed straight up... so it has a 360 degree in 2D.

Most other "360" cameras (Ricoh Theta, Nikon KeyMission, Insta360 Nano, Samsung Gear360,etc) offer a 360* in 3D (i.e. spherical view) via two ~180 FOV lenses stitched together.

If you thought "well obviously," sorry I wasn't so quick on the uptake as you.

A 220° vertical AOV (I suppose it is a circular FOV)leaves you with 20° each side below the horizon.. equivalent to a 40° vertical fov if you discard the ceiling/sky above you.. that would be equivalent to a 33mm lens in Full frame.. using the border of the lens. . I'd like to see some examples

Pritzl: Umm... shouldn't we be looking at 80D as well or did it miss the price cut-off?

Same about the D7200 that won twice this same roundup. . Perhaps dropped in price... great cameras both indeed. ..

How about handling.?
Is Api camera 2 fully implemented yet? With speed control an manual focus? Is there any control over the jpg development ala "pictute control"?

Debankur Mukherjee: Can anyone make a low cost 6MP APS-C sensor with the same low light capability ??

You don't need them to.
Downscale your picture to 6mp and SNR will go up as you want..

That would be the fastest regular zoom in draining wallets terms...

bolador: I Had a FZ200 and then a D90 and a D7200.. with a 70-300 f4.5-5.6mm lens that costs the same as the new FZ200 you don't have the same reach nor light/noise. Or may be just about at 3x price and 4x weight using ISO 400 f/2.8 vs ISO1600 f/5.6 I the DSLR.
at the tele end FZ is hard, heavy and expensive to beat.
Yes a better, same size sensor would be helpful. . But still Panasonic camera is full no features an controls that coolpixs don't want to provide. ..

Is not what I ve said. I fact I ve sold the Pany. But is really portable and always handy. What cheaper tele can get more light than ISO 400 f/2.8?? At f/5.9 you need ISO1600 an that's a lot ISO for apsc DSLR just as workable as ISO 800 in a FZ..

In reply to:

Average User: Richard and others:
I like the article and also many of the comments. I think you were giving advice to relative new comers, to try to choose rather early, the system they want to go with, and then try to maximize that system.
You were saying that the upgrade path doesn't really work well in many cases because ff lenses aren't as good a choice for dx systems, as dx lenses, and visa versa. From an economic perspective, it is good advice.
But the commentary shows that the "upgrade path" is not nearly as linear as an orderly mind might conceive it. Rather it is more like a meandering path defined as we go along, by the unique specific needs and our "discoveries" as we learn. It's part of what makes phtography such a great hobby. There's just no end to what we can learn about how to get better. When I was trying to decide on direction, I finally put together two "idealized" packages: one ff and one dx. By way of example here they are

Yo can use tour Tokina 11-16 @ 16mm in a FF with no mechanical vignheting. Just like 11mm on Dx. So you wont need a new UW angle with a new FX.
