Re: Depends heavily on what you are doing

With the FZ-1000 or 2000/2500, you have a FULLY-articulating rear LCD so you can hold the camera HIGH OVERHEAD, (with the LCD turned 90-degrees "down"), and thus shoot over the heads of everyone. Note that this is impossible with most dSLR's that either do not have fully-articulating LCD's OR that FACT that ALL dSLR's have a very bad AF-DELAY when using Live-View (rear LCD).

That is entirely untrue.  First of all, I shoot over head with my SLR all the time.  Second, AF lag is so low that it just doesn't matter in such situations because framing takes way longer.
