The future? I would LIKE to see them take the 4/3 sensor from the
L1 and put it in an FZ50 type body. Would that cannibalize the L1
market? Sure it would, but it isn't much of a market at all. That
may mean reducing the lens focal length some, maybe 35-300, but
that would be fine with me if it meant a much better sensor.

If they kept the same lens with a 4/3 sensor it would be more like a 10-200, which would make for a very nice all around camera. It wouldn't have the reach of the current FZ but with a TCON 17 that would streatch out close to 340mm (effective).

I think that could be a very big seller.
