I'm new to this forum, coming from Panasonic Compact Camera.

I also was an avid Panasonic superzoom user, starting back in 2004 (FZ10)

FZ200 was a favorite , but my FZ1000 had best I.Q. (4x larger sensor)

I do not post often. This summer I bought a (used) P950 and I think it is in a good condition.

Congrats

Although the point-AF often does not focus properly at the long end of zoom

Choose AF manual Spot. It can AF between tree branches. Only other AF I would choose is Target finding...but that for BIF or other moving subject.

(known drawback) and not every handheld shot is a keeper of course.

Of course. Choosing fps burst mode helps to get a keeper.

The VR is truly amazing. I was shooting the other day ...1/80th at 2000mm reach handheld.

Sold my Lumix FZ200 but will keep the FZ1000.

Sold both of mine. Sold FZ1000 to more into D-SLR world (never was into them before)

Beautiful shots!

Welcome to the forum

Thank you for your tips and nice comments.

My FZ-story seems to be similar to yours and goes like this: FZ10 - FZ5 - FZ18 - FZ200 - FZ1000. And like you I had a FZ80 for a short while but sold it because of the I.Q. . And I always wondered how you managed to get such perfect level of PP with FSIV only.

Regards,
