Re: your FZ "sweet spot": from FZ28 to FZ1000

My entry in the FZ-saga dates from the FZ2 (2003).

I choose the FZ2 for it's long, Leica lens and the extended possibilities (P A S M, compared to the FZ1)

It was succeeded by the FZ3 mainly for the ability of lossless photo's TIFF (which I never used in practice)

The FZ3 was succeeded by the FZ30 which had manual non-extending zoomlens, fully articulating LCD screen and RAW.

Then I made a trip to Fourthird with the L1, but my quality-need (prints) did not justify further investment.

So I returned to the FZ-range with the FZ82 which I use now for over 3 years.

If I have to indicate my sweet spot I hesitate between the manual zoom and articulating screen of the FZ30 versus the enormous reach of the lens and the ability to communicate with my smartphone (Image App) of the FZ82.
