So, it is FZ18, successor to FZ8
18X zoom !!!
Face detection ..... yes, we knew
8.1 MP
1/2.5 sensor
RAW
It seems no successor to FZ50 this year.

Also nice: 400 CIPA, 28-500mm eq range, RAW+JPEG

Ya missed RAW/RAW w/JPG... That would seem to me, the complaint about having no choice of getting a JPG with RAW whether it's wanted or not is history.... And that 504mm comes at the cost of F/4.6, which if it maintains the same focus speed & accuracy the previous recent Fz's acheived @ 420mm might put the Oly out of the running completely, since that seems to hunt @ full zoom regardless of light & probably is the biggest complaint Oly doesn't seem interested in fixing....
