so much fuzzz about 250g. This is an obsession. Are you one some diet program?

The FZ1000 is lighter than a G6 with a 14-140mm lens on it, yet it has more reach and comparable IQ. The G6 with the 45-200 is a tiny bit lighter for equivalent reach, but then you've lost your wide end. The more recent higher-end m43 bodies are generally even heavier, unless you want to do away with the nice grippy DSLR-style form factor.

I guess a lot of people just aren't willing to accept a little bit of extra weight in order to get a much better sensor into the superzoom equation. Can't really fault that though, since photography, as a hobby, can and should be what you personally want it to be.
