Hi, one friend of mine needs a megazoom for some event shots. Just like to know what are some of the better ones in the market.

So far, I only know of Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 and Fujifilm FinePix HS50EXR, thanks!

There are quite a few. Canon and sony have good ones as well. You could read up on the group review roundups on dpreview.com

And I hope your friend is not picky about image quality.

if the events are held indoors under not so good lighting conditions then my personal choice is panasonic fz200 for its constant f2.8 aperture. Since your friend needs megazoom I suppose he or she will use the tele end often. Most of megazooms at tele end has max aperture f5.6 or smaller so it will be a challenge under dim conditions.
