              nowhere in the comparison did snapshot even mention the aperture(important) of each lens. the fz200 has a 2.8 aperture
              for ALL focal lengths of the zoom that you might use, the fz70 does not. why was this not addressed?

              Also the last picture is not a picture of the fz-200.

              I don't think all of the specs are correct for the fz-70 it has an external mic, and it also supports an external flash.
