FZ80/82 1680mm 4K photo vs 1200mm crop?

Hi all,

I'm considering to buy this camera for my next trip.

I have a question for those who own this camera.

The 4K video at max zoom can reach up to 1680mm which I can extract 8mp image out of it which is more than enough for web sharing an  small prints. But I'd  like to know which one has an edge in IQ over other?

Extracted photo from 4K video at 1680mm

Or cropped full size image at equivalent 1680mm?

I know that the benefit of 4K photo is the 30fps so you won't miss a moment but a 10fps full res photo at 1200mm is also quite fast.

What is the dynmmic range and color depth berween 4K photo and still image?
