Look Sportsfans....

I shoot with the likes of the Canon SX-50 HS which has a 24-1100 zoom - and it shoots RAW - and I'm finding the results to be superb (given the genre of camera).

And I also have the 16 MP Nikon P510 (no RAW - just JPG) and surprisingly, this baby shines also.

I realize these super zoom all-in-ones have limitations.  After all, it's the nature of the genre, but let's give this FZ-70 a chance, will ya.  I love the fact that it employs a faster lens than the others use (other than the FZ-200 of course), and also that it shoots in RAW (which will make a huge difference), and has an external flash hot shoe.

I'm frankly looking forward to the initial user comments on this camera.  But let's give it a chance before all of the naysayers come out of their cubby holes to chastise this release.
