  • "I have a suspicion that the telephoto end of the FZ1000 and may be still to slow to capture great pics in anything but the brightest light. "

    Why do you think that? Seems a ridiculous statement...

  • even the still image quality of the DSLR won't be better by definition. For the same reach you need a lens like the Tamron 16-300 which is a very compromised optic, more so than the FZ1000 lens....

  • "It should be noted though that on a small 1 inch sensor there is not much room for cropping quality wise."

    I don't think there will be much more room for cropping on an m43 ILC or DSLR with a...

  • even more curious: how is it possible that 29 already returned the camera? I smell some anxious RX10 owners ;-(

  • "How different would things be if, instead of 20MP, a 12MP 1-incher had been available?"

    Very little, probably so small that the average user would not see it in practice. This issue of 'too small...

  • 'use new sensor which work better on low light'

    I'm curious, what sensor should they use with better low light performance, or are you going to design it for them?

  • how would that work for focal lengths like 25, 100, 200, 400 mm equiv.??

  • "With a 1/1.7" limited to 10 MP for all practical purposes, it would likely produce similar ISO performance to a 20 MP 1" sensor."

    No it would NOT, not even by a long shot. Maybe it would be close...

  • some of the current long zoom options:

    * Panasonic FZ1000: 25-400mm equiv., f/7.6-f/10.8; 0.83 kg
    * Nikon 1 V3, EVF, CX70-300: 189-810mm, f/12.1-f/15.1; 1.0 kg
    * EM1 with 75-300II: 150-600mm,...

  • some of the current long zoom options:

    * Pana FZ1000: 25-400mm equiv., f/7.6-f/10.8; 0.83 kg
    * Nikon 1 V3, CX70-300: 189-810mm, f/12.1-f/15.1; 1.0 kg
    * EM1 with 75-300II: 150-600mm, f/9.6-f/13.4;...

  • some of the current long zoom options with equiv. focal length and equiv. aperture:

    * Panasonic FZ1000: 25-400mm, f/7.6-f/10.8; 0.83 kg
    * Nikon 1 V3, CX70-300: 189-810mm, f/12.1-f/15.1; 1.0 kg
    *...

  • agree with WACONimages: although equivalent focal length and aperture for these two are relatively close, FZ1000 will probably win on optical quality and on many other features (framerate, video,...

  • Are you expecting the 1 inch sensor to be at least as good as the significantly bigger m43 sensors? Not realistic ...

    And what about 'high price', if you add a somewhat similar lens to XT-1 or...

  • @Lab D:
    588 grams? FZ1000 weighs 831 gram, Canon APS-C with 18-200 will be around 1200 gram. With a third party zoom like Sigma 18-250 the total weight is about 1 kg, so relatively close. ...

  • @Perl:
    If you want to go on vacation with 4 kg of photo gear (including a bright 70-200, 15-85 and additional 300 or 400mm) that's fine. I'm just pointing out that for most users this isn't a...

  • "The 400mm equivalent zoom reach is great for wildlife or other travel shots, but also means the FZ1000 will fit in no pocket. 80%+ of the time wide-angle and pocketability matter."

    Since when are...

  • wrong comparison: the 7D with 70-200 will totally UNDERperform the FZ1000 for anything below 100mm equiv. focal length. You have to add at least one other lens like th 15-85IS to come anywhere...

  • Who wants to shoot maximum WA 4K video with such a long zoom camera? You can probably buy a Pana LX8 for that in the near future. This camera is about tele reach, so cropping makes a lot of sense...

  • @Thematic:
    the 'video' can be used for 8MP stills at 24/30 fps, high shutter speed, for an unlimited time (although in practice I think it would be used for short burst to capture the right...
