We reviewed the ZR100 back in the summer of 2011 and had generally positive things to say. While it did little to separate itself from the competition, it performed well enough to come recommended. The ZR200 upgrades the sensor to 16 megapixels but is otherwise exactly the same. Image quality remains to be seen, but we doubt this upgrade alone will be enough to take the wind out of Canon, Sony, or Panasonic's sails. Thus far it's vaporware, however, so who knows when it will actually hit the shelves.
