I’m looking for another family camera. We have a Panasonic LX3 and a Canon SX240. I find the LX3 to be good, maybe even better than the SX240. The latter was bought because of it’s zoom capability. In general, I still prefer to use the LX3 as it seems to take better pictures specially in low or indoor lighting. To upgrade, I was looking into the Panasonic FZ200 which have good reviews. I’m not keen on the weight, but it seems that the small cameras just can’t compare with capability of bigger once. It may not be portable, but I think it’s lighter than DSLR’s which I also think is too much for me since I just basically just a novice point and shooter. Someone suggested an Olympus OM-D E-M5 because it’s small and compact. Upon searching for this, I learned that it’s called a micro four thirds and mirrorless. I’m not exactly sure what type the FX200 is considered but I know it’s not a micro 4/3 nor mirrorless. Frankly, I’m not really sure how I can even compare this to the FZ200 because it’s not apple to apple. It’s also difficult to compare the specs as for instance while one indicates the zoom, the other has nothing shown. Can anyone tell me the merits of one against the other. Thank you.
