I'm glad to hear Panasonic seem to have solved that one.
The Nikon D5100 which is the successor to mine has built in HDR but what some people dont realise is that to get a good result it's best to use a tripod, because it overlays two shots one high and one low, so any movement and it will produce a blur. I find that my D5000 active D lighting is very effective. But in reality it's only the same as exposing for the highlights then boosting the shadows on photoshop or similar.
I am getting a bit fed up with lugging my fairly heavy outfit around all day on holiday, hence my interest in the latest Panny's. I have noticed a FZ200 about to hit the shelves so I will be watching that like a hawk.
Thanks for the pics.

Yes- I think the FZ-200 will have many a keen eye watching....
My FZ-150 is a good all rounder- but,as with any other bridge camera- high iso use compromises it to a degree. However, with the new Panny's f/2.8 lens, that should help keep the iso down,thus negating most limitations of a small sensor...
