If you are leaving in a position where the shutter is half pressed it will drain the battery, RX1 does this, happens to many folks...

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I do not support the call to leave the FZ1000 without options to install a Teleconverter

I always leave it in the OFF position.

Even with camera in "off" position with shutter half pressed or depressed it will drain the battery...even with camera in OFF position it will still drain the battery...

Please could you explain what do you mean by "leaving it with shutter half pressed or depressed", I am not touching the camera, how could it be depressed?, thanks

If you leave it inside a holster or a pouch and the shutter is inadvertently depressed or half pressed it will drain the battery...it may even happen if one of the FN buttons or Control ring is depressed as well...don't know but happens on RX1's as well and the shutter button was the culprit...

Thank you for the clarification, in my case the camera sits on top of my desk.
