I actually want a slightly heavier camera.

Well, now there is one - not "slightly" heavier - it's 41% heavier than the FZ200.

The heft lends confidence to the weight - I always found the FZ200 a little bit on the "hollow" side compared to DSLRs and CSCs, which had a greater density. Undoubtedly the bigger glass is responsible for most of this weight gain in the FZ1000 and that is always going to be the case if you want tele on a 1" sensor.

Of course, some people want things heavier, some people want them lighter.

As I said, for me, lighter things go out with me, heavier ones stay at home, after the initial New Toy syndrome has worn off.

But my main point is that the FZ1000 in no way replaces the FZ8, FZ200, FZ70, or any other lighter FZ. It is "up there".
