Do you own both cameras or have used both of them John? Which would be a better buy? I want a camera to capture shots at concerts and events and to record short video interviews.

Both cameras have free-angle or vari-angle screens - not just a flip-out screen.

Fujifilm 10.6 MP vs. Panasonic 9.6 MP - is this true?

"Advantages of the Panasonic FZ200" and "Reasons to Buy the FZ200" should also include a zoom lens with a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout its 25-600mm range - why is it not mentioned in the comparisons with other cameras, bearing in mind that no other bridge or super zoom camera could match this? This should give the FZ 200 the edge in the scoring.
