Re: The FZ1000 replaces the FZ8, FZ200, FZ70!!!!!

You have to laugh eh Mike.

Listen I'm kind of lost a bit really. It is perfectly clear that the FZ1000 qualifies fully as a replacement as an FZ50 in 1" form. I would not have changed a thing bar added the front control wheel. But genuinely the quest for an FZ50 replacement is over. All I do now is start saving.

Thanks for all the back-up during 'the campaign'. There was many a sticky wicket when I'd be in the thick of an argument and you'd come swooping in. And vice versa. Just great fun.

There is the step change in camera design to watch however, as started by Sony and booster rocketed by Panasonic. All just as Fuji invested heavily in lens changers - ouch. It's going to be one heck of a bun fight; especially when the big players get over being caught with their pants down.

We have ringside seats Mike. Feet up. Break out the popcorn

And thanks again.

The FZ50: DSLR handling of a bright, non-extending Leica 35-420mm F2.8-3.7 lens. Thank you Mr Ichiro Kitao, Mr Michiharu Uematsu and Mr Yoshiyuki Inoue for having triggered the update to the FZ50.
FZ50 is still great though: . Performace diagram here:
