I can't disagree with anything you say. But after using a GH4 for two months, I'm not finding the FZ1000 to feel particularly cheaper in any practical way.

That auto lens retraction is really a PITA, and one I can see no reason for.

There are build compromises on the FZ for sure, but as it's been said NONE of them are deal breakers due to shear performance. I agree the lens retraction thing is a PITA but I've set it's memory position to go back out to 400mm as soon as I touch the shutter. I would love a Firmware update to get rid of it's movement after reviewing.
