Re: I have to ask a couple stupid questions about the FZ300/330

Thank you for taking the time to respond.  I missed the fact that Panasonic went to a completely different sensor type in the years between FZ35 and FZ330, and I shall take your word that the new one outperforms the old at high ISO; presumably that is what motivated the change.  It is encouraging that they resisted the temptation to increase the pixel count in doing so.

As for my worries about extended zoom range implying a sacrifice in optical quality, I suppose all that matters is that both lenses outperform the sensor.  (That's all that matters for any camera lens, but with ILCs they keep coming up with new bodies...)

Interesting that Panasonic briefly tried a 1/1.8" sensor, but made a bad camera out of it.
