If you can afford the RX10IV, go for it. It has a stacked sensor - fast AF, can shoot 24 frames a second. JPEG only, 200 frames before it slow down, and RAW + JPEG, about 100 frames. It's 24-600mm (FF equiv.), so it has the reach. Con, small sensor compares to ILC (Interchangeable Lens Camera, DSLR and Mirrorless).

Do you think there would be enough difference between my Panasonic FZ2500 and it? I know beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

I think so. I have the RX100 VII which has the same stacked sensor and AF algorithm. It's not really a wildlife/BIF camera (24-200mm FF), but I wanted to see what it can do.

The RX100 VII images in the link were downloaded from my Facebook page (will take time to find the source files), so the EXIF were stripped, and the images went through FB's compression.
