    I want to get me a Drone
    My Wife doesn't want me to get a Drone
    So, we'll probably compromise....and I won't get a Drone

    Doesn't she want something of a similar value you can bargain with?

    We played that game for many Years as I built up by DSLR collection.

    I don' think I can afford to pay "double" for a Drone

    Fair enough, wife and I run separate 'play' accounts and a joint. We manage to come to an arrangement when GAS rears it's head.

    Had one of those. Got rid of it and went back to APS-C. Found very few advantages over later models and lenses are so much dearer. In fact the camera I use most now has even smaller sensor (Panasonic FZ300). Far better/easier to use close up or where you want good depth.

    I know what you mean. We're heading for a 2 week USA trip next Month and I'm taking my 5D with 17-40 & 24-70 lenses. Was contemplating taking a 70-300 lens as well but figured I'll take the FZ200 instead, to meet the longer focal lengths.

    Depends on the type of photography you are doing.
    When I purchased a Panasonic FZ-20 many years ago, I thought it was everything I needed. Good quality pictures and plenty of "reach" (Focal Length) in the super-zoom lens. When I wanted to be more creative with limiting the 'Depth of Field' and/or capturing sporting moments (my Sons were playing footy, plus I went to the Medibank Private Tennis tournament every year) then I went down the path of a DSLR...400D, then 50D, then 5D. The Panasonic FZ-200 was a more recent purchase so one of my Sons could experiment with Slow Motion Video....and I've always liked the Panasonic range in compact cameras.

    Unfortunately, my Sons have grown out of the footy and my needs are somewhat different. I still enjoy taking landscape shots but there are times that lugging around multiple lenses does become the proverbial pain in the a#$e. This is what makes me sometimes wonder if I could make do with just taking the FZ-200. Life is like a circle.

    I did one trip to Europe and only took the Panasonic FT2. Easy fit in the pocket and was quite happy with the results.

    So you may be a little dismayed that I'm now taking the FT3, TZ7, FZ200, 5D...and the Wife is taking the TG860. Think I have a wee problem
