Re: FZ1000, LX100, LX10, MFT ILC & 14-140

I second Alex's recommendation of the FZ1000, especially with the original FZ1000 available for under $500. I handled one recently and was really impressed with the ergonomics and performance, which really are worthy of a much more expensive camera. It is, though, a bit on the bulky side. If you don't need long focal lengths, you might also consider an LX100 MkI or MkII or an LX10.

As an alternative to the FZ1000, I'd suggest also a small MFT ILC with Panasonic's 14-140, but the lens alone costs more than an FZ1000. This gets you IQ and low-light capabilities roughly similar to the FZ1000, with a somewhat shorter max focal length (280mm EFL vs. 400) but also smaller size and the ability to use other lenses. The 14-140 is a remarkably good 10x zoom.

Long time ago I used a bridge camera (Panasonic FZ-8), but the pictures below let me change my opinion.
