after being an "FZ10_user" I decided to change my nick since Im not anymore an FZ user ( my old FZ10 and FZ20 cameras have been sold) instead I bought the new Nikon D50 + Kit + 28-200G / the Kit lens is an average lens, some softness on the corner from f3.5 to f5.6 but very sharp at the center / its sweetest point is reached at f11.0 / some CA is also visible in some of my shots /

the 28-200G is quite a good lens, Im really impressed how shap this lens is even at 200mm f5.6 / it's noisier than the 18-55Dx but I really dont care it /

the autofocus in both lensesis pretty slow if you use the single or dynamic area, BUT if you use the the "closest subject" mode / the autofocus speed improves amazingly / it just takes a fraction of a second even at 200mm on the Nikon 28-200G /

here are some links where you can find a bunch of shots taken with the D50 / almost all the images posted are available at "full size" - just click on "original" to see the picture at full resolution = 6MPs



quick tests:



Hope this helps,
