In reply to:

wassim al malak: peace for all .

PLEASE stop negative complains .
let's concentrate on the positives and discuss it , let's evolute our skills , let's enjoy photography , let's enjoy those new cameras and specs .

photography is an art , photogrpher must be at the high-end of the morality and positivity .

it's about depth of feelings

Is it only me?
that feel uncomfortable when the word 'peace' is used?
whenever someone says 'peace' I cannot avoid glimpse of killings,fully covered women flashing in my mind.

The wait is not over.

May be this camera will make 70D sales to increase, because people may think waiting is pointless and 70D is better value.

gskolenda: Come on Canon from a video perspective, This is Crap! No Time lapse, No Wifi,
No Slo-mo FPS, Limited codecs! I'm still buying a GH4 twice the camera, and 4K to boot! I don't want tohear about who needs 4K, If your thinking that, then you don't understand 4k's benefits!

what are 4K s benefits, when we know it is going to take too much memory in camera and difficult to upload in youtube?

Are there other benefits ? if so, how can i get them when downsizing ?

quiquae: Given that this is a zoom and not a 600mm prime, I wish it had a somewhat shorter MFD. (I know it isn't trivial.)

thanks tkbslc

also tjere raises the question.. what is minimal focusing distance at 600mm, if 230cm were for short end?

So, this is all Canon has for this photokina ? already Canon is lagging behind. OR did I miss any canon announcement news?

Branko Collin: If I've learned anything from some of the arm-chair lawyers in this thread, it's that Lensrentals.com must be filthy rich by now because of all the copyrights that automatically devolve to them every time someone takes a photo with rented gear.

I am amazed 5 people liked Branko Collin's comment.

If we extend Branko's logic, all photos are owned by Canon Inc, Nikon inc, Olympus inc etc and the photographer is monkey.

Looking at the quality of photos, I conclude that:
"on average, monkeys are better than photographers"

In reply to:

Yannis1976: Would be interesting to compare with similarly priced m4/3 zoom kits e.g. G6+14-140mm or Oly+14-150mm. Also there is no mention I think about macro performance.

JordanAT,
20lbs + back pack you carried and 2 lbs FZ1000 you want to carry are your preferences.
Smart people might choose something decent between, about 4 lbs.
if you don't want to discuss about DOF, fine the cleaner iso capability will make APS C dslr a better choice.

Which 18-250 kit lenses are f/2.8? -- irrelevant as FZ1000 is not F2.8, a APC-C sensor will have a shallow DOF even with smaller aperture , and has higher iso capability to compensate lower light available and lower noise side effect.

skimping 30-50% on the long end -- 250 * 1.6 x crop factor > 400 mm zoom.

What light you buy back with the larger sensor you throw away with a dark lens, and any detail you ends up getting thrown away when you have to crop to the center of the frame -- these should be tested and proven. Not claimed just.

I have no doubt that FZ1000 will perform very well in such comparison. But the colors, smoothness will be poor.

In reply to:

wkay: So on the studio comparison someone tell me why on the right side of the image the FZ1000 looks better while on the left side the RX10 looks better? DPreview cant align the cameras in their studio?

this was asked weeks back, and they told "due to lens complexities cameras are likely to have one side sharp and another soft".

Absolutely... This camera should have been tested against a 18-250 lens & APS-C SLR.

In reply to:

oldfogey: So DPR - apart from the lens comparison and RAW image dynamic range questions frequently noted below.- How much video 4K or 1080P can the FZ1000 record on a single battery charge? Does the sensor overheat when long video clips are recorded? What are the filesizes/min? And How well does the IS system work?
By the way how can any lens based IS system do "5 axis" - i.e. (especially) correct roll? And what about flash - is the wireless control the same as Olympus's or would one have to invest in a different system?

princecody,
you are ridiculous. Dpreview (amazon.com) is THE LARGEST seller of cameras in the world.
And oldfogey can ask a question, to those who work for profit, though he reserves no right for an answer.

Biological_Viewfinder: This review is nothing new at all.

I have purchased Panasonic cameras because of DPR reviews, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I WAS EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED.

I'm never going to fall for it again.

Biological_Viewfinder ,
dpreview.com is subsidiary of amazon.com now.

The amazon.com will sell anything from pens to pen enlargement pills. So they will in general review, praise and market the cameras, 'sell' phones, memory cards, tripods, camera bags etc.

One recent example i observed : when RX10 was clearly having defect of softer right side (and sharper in left side of photo), the dpreview reviewer commented that it is common to have such anomalies, due to complex lens design.

Besides all these, I believe they still do useful job with integrity and honesty, though amazon sale pressure might show up.

IMHO, for $900, I think the camera will take consistently poorer quality photos compared to a canon T3i SLR (with 18-55 & 55-250mm) camera in that is $700 in costco now. But convenience, video makes the difference for who needs them.

Finally, please try to handle some other ultra zoom camera and see the results. You will surely change your prejudice on panasonic a bit.
