  • Excerpt: This camera paired with the amazing lens is wonderful. But for me it was just to big. Not as big as a DSLR but 3/4's was still to big. For travel, it might be a big bullish, but if you are cool with that, then this is your... I can do everything camera!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time

Nice step up from FZ150

  • Excerpt: With the constant aperture and a few other improvements, this was the logical upgrade when my FZ150 died. Feels very familiar in the hand, and controls were an easy adjustment.
  • Pros: Articulated LCD, Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Substitute for DSLR Big Zoom

Taiko Fan, B&H Photo
1 week ago
  • Excerpt: I plan to use the Panasonic FZ200 as a substitute for having to get a big telephoto zoom for my Nikon DSLR. The size, weight, and price of a DSLR zoom that has the same equiv focal length as the FZ200 would be many times higher. Plus the big DSLR would only be used on a few occasions, such as on an African safarai or animal watching in Alaska.The Leica banded lens on the Panasonic is good enough for me, where my output is 12" x 12" print in a photobook.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom

Great Camera

Zipper, B&H Photo
21 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I am an amateur photographer so most of the images I take are of anything and everything. What I like about this camera is that it is light to carry around, flexible to use for closeups or telephotos, and for what it is, it takes great photos, even in low light conditions. Videos are great, even in low light conditions. My only complaint that it is poor for sport action types of shots, and the viewfinder is useless.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
  • Cons: Poor viewfinder

Continued success with a Panasonic Camera

walter, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera met all expectations for a new camera. The camera is light and compact. The optical zoom gives a lot of flexibility and allowed me to compose amazing pictures.The Lumix DMC-FZ200 has many creative features to explore. I would rarely buy such and expensive item online without testing it and getting a feel for it. I was going on vacation 5 days after the purchase. I wish there was more information about the cameras features in the paper camera manual.

  • Excerpt: It's still a great camera considering it is built with three year old technology. There is no GPS no nfc, only 12 megs and 24x zoom. The 2.8 lens across the entire zoom range makes up for these deficiences. I like the small compact size and articulating screen which produces nice images even though it has only 408 thousand pixels.I would recommend this camera to anyone needing a great walk around camera and would buy it again

Just OK

Dennis, B&H Photo
9 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Nice little camera, but feels too much like a toy. Very nice zoom. Picture quality just OK, but not great. Returned for Olympus OMD EM10 to get better quality photos with a more substantial small camera.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Average image quality

Great little camera with operational limitations.

Lolly Gahg "alive", Amazon

  • Summary: Am still getting to know this camera. Bought it for its 48x zoom and small size to use for bird photography. In truth, it is only a 24x optical zoom. Any zooming beyond that is digital and gives you digitized (noisy) pictures. But, it functions as a nature macro pretty nicely (bees on flowers, etc).
