FZ1000- A summary of your thoughts so far

OK sign up. In a few words what do you make of the release of the FZ1000 so far.

Personal opinion expected; Soapbox corner style.

For my part I see a very accomplished design opening out into the marketplace. The combination of lens quality, IS, focus speed and sensor seem to be keeping everyone busy exploring new limits for photography from a fixed lens cam. Good results voiced about comparisons with superzoom lenses on DSLR's too.

For me though, having EV compensation attributable to the shutter zoom lever is by far the best feature of the camera; especially since the camera can be zoomed at the same time. That's a 5 to 10 second advantage in EV compensated times to composition right there.

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: http://www.juzaphoto.com/recensione.php?l=en&t=panasonic_lumix_fz50 . Performace diagram here: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3862228415/photos/2623982/fz50-performance-range
