I currently have two compact cameras (Canon G11 and Panasonic ZS-7), each good in their own right. I do a lot of macro photography and these do a fairly decent job. I am looking for a camera that has more zoom, but do not want a big DSLR to lug around, so I'm looking at the Panasonic FZ200 and the Canon SX-50. I have handled the Canon and find it very user friendly. I have not handled the Panasonic, yet. Upon reading the reviews, they each have their attributes and drawbacks. I like the fact that the Panasonic has a steady f/2.8 throughout the zoom. Does anyone have experience doing macro with either of these cameras? Does anyone have hands on experience and feels that one is better than the other in terms of quality? Are mirrorless cameras a better alternative and just buy a longer zoom for it? If so, what mirrorless would suit my needs of doing macro AND long zoom? Any help would be appreciated.
