Congrats on getting back with DSLR.

I also got the FZ100 to 'supplement' my DSLR's with a single camera/ lens option for a lightweight travel/ general camera.

Prior to the FZ1000 my travel/ general camera setup was the 70D w/ 15-85mm IS and the 60D w/ 55-250mm IS STM.

Knew the FZ1000 could not completely replace my DSLR's due to the amount of low lighting shooting I do (i.e., 3200-6400+ ISO w/ f/4 L lenses) and did not want to forgo the additional FOV my 10-20mm lens provides.

Been times I've taken my 70D w/ 10-20mm with FZ1000 when I knew I may want/ need 10-20mm additional FOV.

Your comments on the 80D were interesting, and imagine more applicable to JPG shooters than those (like myself) that mainly shoot RAW that can take advantage of the 80D's higher sensor scores.

DxO Sensor Scores

I could not resist the recent Canon Refurb 80D with 18-55mm IS STM and the 55-250mm IS STM Kit for the $692.99.

Did not need the lenses but the Refurb 80D Body only was more, plus figured the lenses could help in getting better price for my 70D with the lenses.

Or just might give the 70D and the lenses to my grandson.

Cheers,
Jon
