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.

That is because of the constant wide aperture. FZ1000 only offers f4 at 400mm, hence the lens CAN be smaller. Physics.
