Default fz200 alternative...

i have finally taken the plunge into DSLR and bought a new Nikon D5100. havent used it much yet as only got it yesterday and its rained all day today (typical)

still using the fz100 though and took some nice sunrise pics that i will post up soon. sorry ive not been about but working hard both with photography and of course my children but i still pop in and see the work, and see that the talent is still very much in team panny.

best wishes to you all,
john

I have also indulged in a Nikon DSLR- primarily for indoor work- besides, you get taken far more seriously with a "Proper" neck strap....

lmao, so true Simon, the neck strap with a big yellow Nikon is also a great "mug me" marker. trudi suggested a day in London with a night in the town taking some pics and having a meal. i was fine with that right up until she suggested taking the camera lol

So- to avoid muggings then, maybe Sony's bijou RX100 might be the discreet night snapper of choice...?
(I can't believe I said that on the Panny' forum...lol...!)

Congrats. I bought an E-PL1 to compliment my FZ150. Variety is good now and then.
