Also I don't understand the depth of field conversation but I read quickly that the small sensors have a smaller triangle cone hitting the sensor affecting the depth of field....

I wouldn't worry about triangle cones, all you need to know is this:

With your FZ1000-ii -

f2.8 gives shallowest focus depth.

f11 gives deepest focus depth.

and, funnily enough, in-between f-stops give in-between focus depths.

Nothing else matters.

That is partly why I only shoot in Aperture Priority mode.

And yes, I say "focus depth", not "depth of field", because this is about "focus" not "fields" (where cows graze peacefully), but then, that's just me, I have always been troublesome.
