angus rocks: curious, the FZ1000 has been unavailable on bestbuy's website for a few days now. i haven't heard any well sourced rumors of a replacement. anyone else? it is a great camera, especially for it's original release date. but, i don't want to set off anyone's trigger words, i'm waiting for a long zoom camera that shoots 4K at 60fps. no no no... not a camcorder, i do shoot more stills than video. just want the extra smooth look. sony broke my little heart when they didn't include it in the rx10ii or rx10iii.
also i think you meant its hit rate is too "low" and the speed is too slow for sports photography. in reference to the rx10ii.

Yeah I noticed that too. The Fz1000 disappear from Best buy, who knows the reason why....was not selling well? Or was selling too much? Or they are waiting for a new model? Who knows.....

Gearóid Ó Laoi, Garry Lee: I got one of these a few months ago. I mostly use "serious" cameras like Canon D series but for holidays, most recently was using a Sony NEX kit. I brought this Panasonic on a long holiday to New Zealand, together with my Sony Kit. I shot about 50 shots with the NEX and 5000 with the Panasonic. IQ wise in any reasonable light it's excellent, it's very responsive, the IQ is excellent at all focal lengths and it'll go to 800mm in one mode (I know it's digital but it's fine). I use mine on silent mode mostly (you can can't use flash in this) because it's truly silent and it appears to increase the battery efficiency a lot. This camera is easily paired with a smartphone by wifi and there is rapid transfer of selected shots to the phone.
This is EASILY the best all-in-one camera I've had. It's fantastic for holidays etc. It's light enough to have around your neck all day.
Can I fault it? Well, it's not waterproof, but a plastic bag is.
I LOVE this camera.

I don't own the camera, but tested it in Bestbuy by chance, and Wow! I was surprised. I really loved the electronic viewfinder! and fast autofocus. I have a Canon D5 MIII and a couple of Canon 70D, but now I want this Lumix to be my first EVF camera, I'm officially impressed!
