Re: FZ70 Announced. But what about the FZ200 replacement?

I've been seriously considering the FZ200 for a while - the constant aperture zoom lens is wonderful for shooting in low light. My current superzoom is the FZ40 - I've been very happy with it, and a faster version of a lens with the same zoom lens is more appealing than the camera with a longer zoom range.

With all my other camera gear, it's hard to justify replacing the FZ40 (which is why I haven't bought an FZ200). I just hope that Panasonic still has a constant f2.8 option in about a year, when I plan to upgrade.
