I think the number one question is how much of the improvement of the P1000 over the P900, was due to the new lens? The lens of the upcoming P950 is said to be the same that the P900 had.

I don't think most if the improvement of the P1000 vs P900 was in the iq department, other than marginal due to it being slightly faster maybe due to bigger lens. The only time I noticed a (very small) difference was once I did a side by side comparison at home (not even in "lab" conditions).

The biggest improvements were in other areas: focus ring, raw, Snapbridge, hotshoe, better evf, and other smaller convinience adjustments, i.e. birdwatching mode on the menu wheel, etc.
