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.

I have never said that the FZ1000 should be lighter, or cheaper, or more like the FZ200.

The FZ1000 is great, it will become iconic and it is the size and weight it has to be, in order to be superior, in many respects, to the FZ200 etc.

But the humbler, cheaper, lighter FZs have a success story of their own and a large, enthusiastic following - so my hope, and opinion, is that the cheaper, lighter FZs will continue to have their own upgrades.
