If FZ250(?):FZ200 = FZ70:FZ60 then I will be extremely impressed.


How about this

FZ 250 = FZ 70 spec but

- 2.8 Lens all the way

- Magnesium Body.

- 1K EVF

- 12MP

Price $ 599

I suspect (pronounced "hope")  it would have a larger aperture at full zoom and the FZ200's flip-out LCD, but with the same body and sensor as the FZ70.

Seems useless for them to put all that effort into the redesign and then waste it on something which is less than an upgraded FZ200.

Figure that the FZ70 objective is at least 215mm/5.9=36.4mm diameter. The FZ200 objective is already about 40mm diameter, but the FZ70 lens structure seems much larger than the FZ200's, so there's room for expansion, at least in my hopes.
