If you already have a DSLR that's superior to the FZ1000, why are you interested in it ?

My DSLR is slower with AF/focusing, framerate and for pointing the camera in the right direction for fast moving subjects (due to weight / size). A DSLR that can compete with these recent 1 inch sensor cameras on speed would be very heavy and expensive. I think that sometimes a smaller camera with long focal length, fast AF and high framerate can capture images that are impossible with my current camera. The image quality will be a bit lower than what I'm used to, but that's always better than missing most photo opportunities

The Nikon 1 V3 / CX70-300 combo looks like it could do the job for me but it is very expensive for a 'niche' application. If FZ1000 comes close to the Nikon combo I will probably buy it; I will keep an eye on what images users can take with this camera when it becomes available.
