1/1.8 to 1/1.6" Super Zoom
Oct 15, 2010

I want the IQ from a slightly larger sensor (say in the 1/1.8 - 1/1.63" range) but I still want my superzoom without the bulk of a u4/3 or the hassle of having to have interchangable lenses. The 1/2.5" sensor on my FZ18 certainly does not cut the mustard and the 1/2.33" sensors are only marginally better.

Has anybody made a good superzoom with an intermediate sensor, or is the FZ50 in a class of its own.

Am I now beginning to realize why there are so many threads about the FZ50 successor?

Thanks
