Canon 70D+Tamron 16-300VC vs Panasonic FZ1000 for Street-or EOS M3
Aug 4, 2014

I have a Canon 70D and Tamron 16-300 VC.  Nice street walk around.  Was checking out Pany FZ1000 for same to get smaller and lighter.  Comparing side-by-side though looks like Canon+Tamron is 2 inch longer and 1lb heavier but other dimensions very close.

Curiously though I am currently on vacation and am using Oly OMD EM5 with Pany 14-140 OIS for same since didn't want to carry heavier Canon stuff.  Am missing the extra reach but like the smaller/lighter size.

Lots of trade offs.  Makes me hope for EOS M3 if it has articulating touchscreen LCD and use Tamron 18-200 VC.  The idea is the EOS M3 would have better IQ and Tamron may make 16-300VC for it.

Lots of wishing here but maybe get pleasant surprise at Photokina.
