Will they have an "FZ250"

Given the current fascination with maximizing video capabilities.....Probably not.

I will genuinely pass out if they actually release a manual zoom FZ. A camera that good left on the shelf that long would require a quantum leap in understanding by Panasonic R&D for someone to slam the FZ50 on the table and yell "Update it".

The FZ50: DSLR handling of a bright, non-extending Leica 35-420mm F2.8-3.7 lens. I live in hope that Mr Ichiro Kitao, Mr Michiharu Uematsu and Mr Yoshiyuki Inoue have triggered the update to the FZ50. Please update the FZ50. It is unique and users of it cannot update without compromise of one or more of its combination of features.
