Nice, but can it compete with the likes of RX10...?

Discuss!

Too short for that moniker - and for me I like the 1" sensor and was hoping for a larger sensor in the FZ200 refresh. Maybe this is just the first in a new 1" line that might also include longer!

Might also compete somewhat with the Olympus Stylus 1.

You learn something new every time you press the shutter

400mm with a 1" sensor is pretty long- look at the size of the rx10 with its 200mm lens, its a pretty big boy. Unless Panasonic pulls off some real magic, a camera with twice the reach is going to be pretty darn big too (though I hope they prove me wrong).  If you need longer reach with a sensor this big or bigger, it's probably time to step up to an interchangeable lens system.
