I have it narrowed down to one of the two titled cameras. Any users of either have specific recommendations or condemnations?

How does that enter into the FZ200/SX50 choice?

He's just throwing out another option.

BTW B&H has an even better deal and
they throw in a bag and sd card for $370.

Yashica, what are your priorities with the camera?

From my perspective, if I was choosing a primary camera for all-around use I would go with the FZ200 and the constant 2.8 aperture and overall better IQ. If this was a secondary camera I'd probably go with the SX50 and that crazy 1200mm FL.

It will be my 'take everywhere' camera. As far as IQ goes, the Panny only beats the SX50 because of the f/2.8 lens. Shoot them both at the same aperture and Canon's sensor and NR routine will beat the Panny everytime. The Canon is a tad better at stills. The Panny is better at video, burst rate, aperture. The Panny is also 25% more $$$. I really don't need 1200mm. I am leaning toward the Panny, but the Canon will do ETTL with my 430EX II. The Panny won't. Still debating.

I'd personally go with the Lumix FZ200. I like that constant f/2.8 aperture across the whole 25-600mm zoom range. It can also do full HD movies and has 12fps capability as well. :-D It would make a great all-around and travel camera.
