FZ200 or FZ1000 for macro

I'm looking to treat myself to a new camera, and apart from the normal everyday stuff + holidays, days out, I'm hoping to do more & improve my macro shots,, flowers & butterfly's being the main two.

So would the older FZ200 with its constant f2.8 lens or the newer FZ1000 with its larger sensor be a better choice,, the price difference is a major factor for me in the sense of the 1000 here in the UK looks to be twice the price of the older 200.

Is it worth the money ??

Any help, info, advice to help me make the right choice would be most welcome.
