Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200
Panasonic has done almost everything right with the FZ200, producing a super zoom with a no-compromises lens. It performs very well, takes photos that are comparable (or better) than other super zooms, and has a top-notch movie mode.

Sports and nature photographers who need big zoom power and don't want to settle the slow lenses found on typical super zooms.
Those taking a lot of flash people pictures, or who switch between the LCD and EVF frequently.

That nice lens does command a bit of a premium, but I figure that low light and action photographers won't mind dropping another $100 for it. Despite some issues with highlight clipping and redeye, the lack of an eye sensor for the EVF,...
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 review
The Lumix FZ200 is Panasonic's Flagship Superzoom and is worthy of the title. If extreme telephoto power is what you're looking for there are plenty of other models out there that passed the 24x marker a good while back and are now well beyond what the FZ200 has to offer. But if you were the kind of person who judged a super-zoom purely on the basis of its zoom range, you probably wouldn't be...
