FZ70 Announced. Is This Just Another Frankencamera?

I like it!

Most of my photography these days is at the long end of the zoom. Surfing, Birding, a little wildlife. 1200mm sounds great. It's just starting to get where I want it because you can't crop these small sensor cameras very much. The more zoom the better! I know Canon had a 1200mm already but I prefer Panasonic when it comes to compact zooms.

I have the Panasonic LT55 for both my FZ200 and FZ150, it just doesn't give me the image quality I want. It's close, but it's not good enough. Not even to satisfy my casual use. I get a little picky on it sometimes.

Now, what I want to know is this. Are they about to announce a higher end version of this camera? I'd welcome better video. They caught my attention today, that's for sure.
