400mm with a 1" sensor is pretty long- look at the size of the rx10 with its 200mm lens, its a pretty big boy.

That is because of the constant wide aperture. FZ1000 only offers f4 at 400mm, hence the lens CAN be smaller. Physics.

It will be interesting to see the specs. Interesting factoid: The RX10 weighs the same as my GH4 with 14-140 II lens mounted (to within 0.01 lbs or so).

I think they were wise to go f/2.8-f/4 on the FZ1000 lens.
