looks like (ORIGINAL) FZ-1000 is "no-more"

Neither Amazon or Adorama is showing them at all ...

B&H shows one for $797 (but w/ note they will notify when available) .. and also shows one @ $952. (the original @ same price -or more- as the M2)

I find it difficult to recommend to "beginners" any more at that price.

The original already had more than most beginners could appreciate or fully exploit and was still best-value for buck @ <$500.

And I am disappointed the M2 does not have the "stacked" sensor for "C"-PDAF @ 25fps.  I just wonder if Sony will "not" sell it, or wants too-much money for it.

That is a feature that even beginners could appreciate, most would not yet understand or appreciate post-focusing etc.
