Thanks to all you responded and for helping me make this decision.

The FZ1000 was delivered Monday and I have been learning more each day. Very impressive. Good build and ergonomics, not at all heavy (go lift the RX10) and somewhat similar to my FZ200 in terms of operation.

Great price comparatively with many extras which included a 64GB Transcend SD card, spare battery and UV lens filter. Plus, paired with the Panasonic Image app I am now able to geotag my photos, something I have struggled with over the past couple of years (gps4cam never quite worked reliably for me and is no longer being supported).

All in all, so far very good, and again, thanks for taking the time to respond.


Yes indeed, it is the obvious upgrade and a worthwhile one. Personally I would have gone to the very latest and greatest model, either the MkII or FZ2000, but you have probably hit the value/performance sweet spot with the 1000.
