              Were did they get the $726.00 FZ-150 price from? It was slightly less than $500.00 in Canada.

              That must be the worst camera review every, don't even mention that the FZ200 has 2.8 right through the lens zoom.

              The FZ200 has f2.8 right throughout it's zoom range. The FZ150 only starts at f2.8.
