When it was introduced in October 2013, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 was peerless. It was the first superzoom to offer a 1"-type sensor, much larger than the 1/2.3"-type chips commonly found in that class. It paired that with an impressive F2.8 constant 24-200mm equivalent zoom. Earlier this month the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 joined the RX10 in this newly-minted category boasting almost certainly the same sensor and a 25-400mm equivalent F2.8-4 lens.

They line up nicely for a head-to-head comparison - and that's exactly what we've done. Our Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 First Impressions Review now includes a detailed comparison between the two cameras.
