Replace FZ1000?

Hi All,

I'm reviewing my gear. Have a Panasonic FZ330 & more recently the FZ1000. I'm happy with the images from the FZ1000, but slightly concerned by its lack of weather sealing. More concerned re dust than rain from the environments I sometimes photograph in. Taken the 330 into dusty environments (sensibly) with no problems, but it would help to have a bit more flexibility in low light. Panasonic menus and layout are sensible and straightforward as far as I'm concerned.

Most of my photography is urban / industrial plus railways, ships.

Three questions:

• anyone used the fz1000 in dusty environments, however cautiously? (Incidentally, I looked at the fz2000 and there are contradictions as to whether it is weather sealed.)

• perhaps try the em5iii c/w 12 - 200 lens (inspite of horrible menus) because both are weather sealed?

• or maybe just stick with what I've got and enjoy it? (And save money at the same time!)

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
