For those that upgraded from FZ200 to FZ1000, does the FZ200 still get used?

So I acquired an FZ200 this summer and it's been a lot of fun but I must admit the features of the FZ300 sound really appealing, better EVF, faster focusing, 4K movie etc.  But also of course so does the better image quality of the FZ1000.  But the thing is, I use the camera a lot in walks in the woods and on hikes etc.  I find it's small and light enough so carrying it around the neck for extended periods of time really doesn't bother me.  I'm not sure the same would be true of the FZ1000 based on the one time I played with one in a store a couple of years ago.  So for those of you that did the FZ200 to FZ1000 upgrade, do you find the features and image quality of the FZ1000 are so overwhelming that the FZ200 gathers dust or do you still use the FZ200 because of the smaller size or other reasons?
