If this is a 20MP sensor, wouldn't izoom give a 666mm EFL 12MP image using 0.6" of the sensor?

Not sure of the math, using 12/20=0.6 of the area may not translate to the diagonal. If it does that would be 40% larger than the 1/2.3 sensor in my FZ200.

Birding with FZ220

If I'm not wrong you'd get 600mm from 10 MP (50% of pixels give you 50% more reach). Just a tiny bit less than FZ200.

These calculations are only relevant if the lens has the resolving power to match.  Let's hope it does!
