FZ1000 and FZ300 / Going to compare

Ok I just got my new FZ300 the other day and right off the bat I have 2 major issues with the camera, and they are defects. First off the lens barrel is mis-aligned and showing the left side of the lens in every frame, and now the shutter button has seized up and is complete mush. Oh my. I've only taken it on 2 walks around the neighborhood and backyard so far! EEK! Oh well, I have a replacement on the way and I'm hoping all will be right with that one, I have never had a defective Panasonic camera before.

Also, while I was at it I thought I would try out an FZ1000 as well, just in case the quality of the FZ300 ends up being less than I had hoped, both will be here Wednesday and I'm going to put them through the paces right away and directly compare them.

((I wanted to see what all the hooplah was about with the FZ1000))
