eysha- f/2.8 throughout the zoom.... lots of light/fast shutter speeds/low iso's etc....

wow, as an alternative to mirror-less (price/size wise) for someone shooting primarily wildlife and sports this camera is a really compelling option. I know I am always impressed with the shots catalex54 has shared made with the FZ150.

Very silly question; but is the FZ200 mirrorless? A friend asked me, & I wasn't sure.

Yes. Only SLR and DSLR cameras have mirrors.

Should this be better in low light situations?

Stan- at anything other than wide angle- and utilising it's widest aperture- the FZ200 has to be better- simply because it's letting MUCH more light in.
The ability to retain an f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range will enable the user to utilise faster shutter speeds for moving subjects(or in the interests of stability),or allow the use of lower iso settings to keep things "clean". The wildlife shooters will be very happy....!
Of course- if you use identical settings (iso/aperture/shutter speed) with the FZ-150 and 200 then,of course,improved low light performance is unlikely- unless the processor's improved also.

So is the processor improved? Will all the FZ35 be sold on now? This new 200 is expensive, so is it worth the money?
My birthday and wedding anniversary are 5th August and hubby is looking for a present for me as there is nothing that i want so far. Do i want to upgrade to a 200 from a 35 and if so why - what would the benefit be?
I am not that camera literate so i ask lots of questions as i know there are so many experts here to instruct me.
