Just out of interest, in your opinion, what did the FZ1000 do better?

For a given large landscape shot at less than 400mm focal length, and all other things being equal, the FZ1000 puts more pixels on a distant object than the FZ330 and theoretically gives more resolution. Take distant trees for example. But enough difference to matter to me?

But on my e.g. small objects in a dim National Trust house, e.g. at f4, the FZ330 gives more depth of focus than the FZ1000 at f4, so I might have to use the FZ1000 at f5.6, requiring higher ISO. This matters to me a lot.

Every camera is a compromise, it always come back to "What do you want most?".

Small size and light weight matter to me a lot too, and this favoured the fZ330.

But my Olympus Stylus 1S is likely to run alongside my twice-as-big FZ330 for ever. It doesn't do it all, but it does more-per-size-and-weight, which often suits me fine.
