Panasonic FZ200

4 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Panasonic has a long-standing legacy for producing quality long-zoom bridge cameras, including the FZ150 superzoom which we reviewed and heartily recommended a little more than a year ago. However, the company pumped some new excitement into the line when it was announced the Panasonic FZ200 would house a Leica DC Vario-Elmarit-branded lens that boasted a f/2.8 max aperture across the entire 24x optical zoom range.
  • Pros: Leica-branded 24x optical zoom lens (25-600mm equivalent) with constant f/2.8 max aperture, Effective Power O.I.S. image stabilization, Full-res burst shooting at 12 frames per second, Fast autofocus and very low prefocused shutter lag, Excellent low-light AF, A ton of creative modes and filters, including panorama and HDR, High-res electronic viewfinder, Tilt-swivel 3-inch LCD monitor, Built-in popup flash and hot shoe, Very good flash range, Manual exposure and focu...

Panasonic Lumix FZ200 review

What Digital Camera
14 December 2012
  • Summary: The headline feature of the FZ200 is its 'world's first' constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the focal range, so there's no doubt that the optical capability of the camera is going to be the main focus for many photographers. The good news is that the camera performs particularly well in this area, producing some excellent images with very few flaws.

PC Magazine
23 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The 24x Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 doesn't have the most ambitious zoom ratio, but a sharp f/2.8 aperture lens and speedy performance make up for it.
  • Pros: Fast f/2.8 zoom lens. Speedy performance. Sharp images. Excellent EVF. Hot shoe and mic input. Raw support.
  • Cons: Expensive. Rear LCD could be sharper. Not the longest zoom in class. No GPS.

Panasonic's Lumix FZ200 is across-the-board excellent

CNET
12 June 2012
  • Summary: If you're searching for a long-zoom camera that falls in between a point-and-shoot and digital SLR experience, look no further than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200.
  • Cons: The FZ200 is expensive, especially if all you're after is a long zoom lens. It doesn't have built-in GPS or Wi-Fi, or a proximity sensor for switching from the LCD to EVF. The SD card slot and battery compartment can't be accessed when the camera is on a tripod.

  • Conclusion: If you want a superzoom cam then, we'd recommend the Lumix FZ200 which wipes the floor with rival snoopy snappers. A small and solid build coupled with 24x optical zoom and that excellent Auto mode make it a winner but remember, video can be a mixed bag. As an overall package, it's our superzoom of choice in Stuff's best compact cameras line-up .
  • Pros: Sublime picture quality, Built well, Movable display
  • Cons: Video not so good

Panasonic Lumix FZ200 review

Pocket Lint
10 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Superzoom cameras have been stretching zoom capacities for years, but it looks as though Panasonic’s latest Lumix FZ200 has taken a different approach: it’s opted to maintain its predecessor’s 24-600mm equivalent zoom, but now offers an f/2.8 aperture throughout the whole range. Yep, you read that right: f/2.8 across the entire zoom. Yoiks, could the Lumix FZ200 be what the superzoom fold has been missing?
  • Pros: An f/2.8 aperture throughout zoom range, 24-600mm equivalent range is significant, vari-angle screen, decent battery life, raw file capture available
  • Cons: It’s big, at more than £500 it is pricey, no touchscreen, viewfinder refresh rate on the low side (makes it a bit juddery), no display of AF/MF on rear screen, mic input is 2.5mm not 3.5mm
