Actually there are lots of good photos posted and some bad ones as well. There is something wrong with these. You should be able to view a 20mp picture at 20 MP full crop that is what its for. Use the review done by this website. There is an incredible amount of baloney flying around on here and some of it is trolling. Whenever some new camera comes out we see weird looking samples from people who never posted before.

Yes....BUT. Bear in mind, which most don't, that a FULL sized file is NOT what is used for print purposes as it is interpolated (often at approximately 40-50% of it's original) and you needn't worry about small imperfections in a give picture such as lack of sharpness, contrast and worst of all NOISE. Do we consider the 100% view as important as a guideline of performance? ABSOLUTELY. But far too much is put into what 100% views provide. If you are a huge croppers than sure, it's an issue. The vast majority of photographers however are NOT. Files from even the finest DSLR's are not always real pretty to look at at 100% on a screen, but they sure do provide some sweet prints. From all indications and from what I've seen the FZ1000 is MORE than adequate to provide 22x17 prints that will be virtually perfect as compared to some minor issues in a full sized on screen scrutiny. Just something to consider in reality.
