xoio: A GRAND to be forced to wave the cam around in front of your face like a f*cking iphone! For that much dosh, the evf should be a given!!!

You're completely missing the point.
This isn't about what type of camera it is, or what it can do,. . Its about the fact that 'once upon a time' NOT so long ago. MOST cameras' (even entry level cameras) HAD top panel LCDs as well as back monitors and either an optical or electronic viewfinder. (All three)
Over the past 7 years, there has been a 'negative feature creep' where these extremely useful and what were 'standard' components have disappeared from most entry level to mid level cameras. And are now viewed (due to manufacture 'spin'), as being PREMIUM features!
This is entirely down to camera manufacturers having to complete with the 'dumbed down' current fad / trend of the narcissistic, 'wave your phone front of your face' iPhone generation.

Image gallery is missing.......

OF course, one jumps straight to the 'image quality' tab and dials up the FZ1000 ... After all, this IS really the camera that everyone wants to compare against..
As is mentioned in the review, the FZ1000 not only holds its own, it STILL surpasses the FZ2500 in sharpness, has slightly less noise destruction at higher iso levels, and i personally think retains colour saturation better than the FZ2500.
So.. After nearly 3 years.. my FZ1000 is still THE keeper!

That's clever, how did 29 people get to 'own' this before it has even been released, let alone 33 people say they have already 'had it' and subsequently got rid of it? :-D
Before anyone does a sarcastic chip in,.. Having a pre-production trial LOAN is NOT 'owning it' ... ;-)

deep7: I'm not into endless laws but this is a good one. If your work is legitimate, get a licence. If you're perving, spying, or intruding on people's privacy, hopefully you won't get that licence.

deep7 You present a floored argument. - E.G. You might be a professional videographer or just damn good at creative videoing... And your ability to create stunning aerial footage has now been stuffed due to some BS goal-post manoeuvre.. Where you now require a license under a category you will not be eligible to obtain.. I,E a subversive tactic.

So who paid that judge off with the prerequisite back-hander.
Typical goal-post moving tactic by a government in order to keep their thumb pressed down on the pleb masses..

Whilst i agree that the FZ1000 doesn't 'feel' as solid as its contemporaries like the RX10 etc, but does still feel solid enough. How solid and 'premium' does the FZ2000 feel in comparison? Have they 'beefed' it up?

Frank Bollinger: This article says the FZ1000 has a touchscreen LCD. I haven't located that feature on my FZ1000 and would very much like to know how to find it (I'm happy to see that the FZ2500 does have one).

HATE touch screens on cameras... Your greasy bacteria ridden smartphone is bad enough.. Why anyone (photohgrapher) would want to smeg up their camera screen too...... hmmmmm

Nice tweaks, but I look at my FZ1000 and still feel satisfied. :)

On article Throwback Thursday: the Samsung NV10 (75 comments in total)

What an old fart i am!
My first digi was the Canon G1 back in early 2001 - all of 3mp!!- A friend of mine still has it after i donated it to them. The Canon Pro1 followed in 2004 - Interesting bridge camera, superbly built, but had its flaws.
Then i had a brief go with the Olympus SP-570 UZ. This camera was extremely well spec-ed for a tiny bridge cam. 26-520mm equiv zoom, sensor shift IS etc etc.. It even had IN CAMERA Pixel remapping AND a bulb mode that went to over 8 minutes!! - Are you Listening, Sony, Canon, Panasonic etc!!! ... but alas the end result pictures looked like oil paintings, and it was very slow shot-to-shot. ..
However i then moved on to the Fuji S100FS 'legend' in 2008 ... This cam saw me through 10000s of images. It too had its quirks, but it took damn fine images! .. The S100FS saw me right up until last year (2015) when i got the FZ1000 - Now this cam is in a league of its own.. It's taken Sony THREE versions of its RX10 to finally exceed it.

Here's an idea....... Buy a camera. :-D

Oh well. $23 THOUSAND - and is DIDN'T sell!!! Whilst you still have the asset, as far as liquidising it into hard cash goes, you have 100% of nothing, because you overcooked the reserve. The open market has spoken.
How much is something worth? - How much people are prepared to (or are convinced to) pay, and they weren't prepared to pay what you wanted.
Alas if you try again, the bids offered are invariably never as much as people were prepared to pay the 1st time..
Good luck in any case
