Thsoft: Why no touch screen ?

Preset buttons are generally faster to use if programmed properly. Having to muck about with a touch screen = losing the shot.
Anyway touch screen is pretty much old tech. With Wi-Fi and NFC use your smart phone and stick the camera on a tripod or table and control it from your mobile phone.

Nukunukoo: Does anyone know if this camera uses the whole sensor when doing video (like the RX10)? I do know that when doing 4K, the image is cropped, indicative on a non-full sensor readout, but I just wanted to be sure. Also, when you say "clean" HDMI output does that also mean uncompressed? Thanks.

Yes to both of your questions

2stepbay: I'm excited the bracketing for HDR has finally moved beyond 3 images. This model offers 3, 5 and 7 to go with +-3.

Bonus...same battery as FZ200

No slo-mo video??? Like the 120p option on the FZ200

Check the specs. I think you will find theres an option for a lot higher fps rate just not at 4k resolution.

Like you I tend to fall somewhere in the middle. Partly because of the camera I'm using but also because I like the subject relating to its background. The trick for me is to try and create the feeling of depth within the image, kind of how it might look if you were an insect sitting on the next flower.
And you are right. Getting the look right takes time and patience as well as a heap of shots some days.
