Why don't you make a list of what's stopping you from taking great photos? I suspect the bottom line will be conveniences. This isn't convenient for me, that isn't convenient for me. Those aren't good reasons.

My FZ50 has been gathering dust for many years. So have my FZ1, FZ10, FZ30, and C2100UZ. Time for you to move on.

I maintain that list. I think if I forsake a good grip, EV adjustment, and settle for no more than 300mm long end, I can buy a camera. It will mean a loss of 25 to 30% of my current shots, and be a camera less easy to carry for long periods. But such compromises will at least open the choice up.

The FZ50: DSLR handling of a bright, non-extending Leica 35-420mm F2.8-3.7 lens. I live in hope that Mr Ichiro Kitao, Mr Michiharu Uematsu and Mr Yoshiyuki Inoue have triggered the update to the FZ50. Please update the FZ50. It is unique and users of it cannot update without compromise of one or more of its combination of features.
