marshwader: I am coming to totally different conclusions with my own tests of the lens of my FZ2000.
You can see my samples here: My copy is very much better ???

I think the reviewer has an overwhelming gush of Admiration for Sony Cameras, it seemingly does not matter what non-Sony camera that is under review, that there seems to be the overwhelmingly gush of Admiration for some similar Sony model, I have noted similar comments to this in other forums, especially if it is Canon or/and Nikon gear that is being reviewd

Sophia Scott: 1.1 k $ ? thats a lot, i am against iphones an such but i can't deny it has a great camera , you could buy an iPhone hat does a lot more and some 3-4 houndred $ camera. I am not saying not to buy this but if you are not a professional it is more practical to go for other options. This is just my humble opinion.

Sophia, What "loads more" can an I-Phone do that the FZ1000 fz2500 cant? please tell, or perhaps you need to read more about the Panasonics and learn before making silly comments, these 2 models will simply blow an I-Phone out of the water in camera/video performance, and features!!

Carl Mucks: Panasonic cameras have long been known for their bleak colors and lifeless pictures, which impossible resuscitate even in Lightroom. This one is no exception. They really need to learn how to produce good colors and tonality from Olympus.

Carl Mucks, 0lympus Fanboy perhaps?

likovsky: Strange to not see it compared to the Fuji X-T2 or even X-T10. Maybe it's not supposed to be a prosumer or professional camera? The price is nice-ish!

It has the 80d sensor which is actually a very good sensor.
Not D7200/XT-2 good but definately ahead to what is available in m43.

Perhaps slightly better in image quality and low light, there is not much difference picture wise between APS-C and Micro 4/3s as there used to be, technology has moved on from that old adage, however, Sensor overheat is a big issue for me, i produce lots of video, in fact i have read this is a major failing with the Sony A6300`s Sensor, 11mts of video and `bang` it switches off to cool down, not for me i`m afraid, until the question of APS-C Sensor overheat is resolved i will stick with the superior performing Sensors (video-wise) in the micro 4/3 system which do not seem to have any problems in that regard!!

justmeMN: $1199 (body only) for shutter shock and bad JPG colors. What a deal.

`ALL` DSLR`S and mirrorless cameras have `some degree of shutter shock` and colors can be adjusted in-camera on most micro 4/3 cameras, do keep up!!!!

MikeFairbanks: Same price as the new Sony A6300, but I don't see the advantage of going with the Panasonic.

A6300 Has horrible menu system that slows down capture, and its Sensor can easily overheat after just 11 minutes in HD/4K video mode after which the camera will switch off, totally no use to me, give me micro 4/3 anytime, far superior in video terms and not far behind A6300 in pic quality anyhow!!

marike6: A nice video camera in good light. For stills, $1500 for a 1 inch sensor camera is too high for me. The beautiful new Pentax K1 full frame or D610 kit is just a bit more or a Fujifilm XT1 kit for less. For still photography and professional quality results, it's not even a choice. But OK, maybe the RX10 II price will drop but knowing Sony, probably not. I'm still interested in one of the Nikon DL cameras, second cameras shouldn't cost a small fortune.

How much is a G4 now?

agaoo: Good job SONY, you give real good lesson to Panny. Keep it up.

Like to the original RX10 Panny taught it a lesson, wait till we see what the panny FZ100 Mk2 delivers, probably a few good lessons for Sony, eh, lol!!!

Franz Weber: I realy like this cam but I wish Panasonic had included theese features:
- tilting sreen
- USB charging
- higher res EVF with higher magnification like Canon G5X or Sony RX100IV

If theese were included I would have happily paid 100 bucks more for it.

Mike FL, because Sony cut corner!!!

In reply to:

onlooker: Pentax, do you want to surprise everyone with something truly different, or do you want to release yet another "me too" camera with dinky buttons to drag mediocre AF points around, and with no way to compete with Canon and Nikon AF lens stable? If the former, release a true manual focus camera, with a proper focusing screens, and with proper mechanical focus lenses. Be different.

Another site says its goin to ba a mirrorles with a 31/2 million pixel viewfinder, yeaaaa! way ta go Pentax, now watch this baby kick ass!!!

Aroart: One of your best dp reviews to date..So many people are knocking this camera for not being 4k ....This is a camera first and video is a second.. this camera will grab focus in stills and video better than any 4k camera thats out there...oh and we will see if samsung nx 1 will do what it says it can do....Great job and effort in making this video...people need to stop bashing and star shooting....

No way, GH4 eats it in speed for stills and Video.

agaoo: GH4 is not on the list. May be it's not free for GH4 users since they don't want free :-D

Why not also for the FZ1000 which is `supposed` to be Panasonics top bridge camera? yet the FZ300/30 gets this feature, this would suggest to me that a replacement is coming perhaps soon for the FZ1000, i cant understand why this firmware is not available for the GH4 either!!

In reply to:

munro harrap: Both fail. I have had to return an RX10 for an obvious reason-when you film it insists in recording all focussing and zooming sounds to your footage. Optically the lens is good despite very heavy distortion at 24mm that can only be corrected in software-easily more than 5% barrel. As you get to 200, at f2.8 the one I had was very sharp in the centre, but only a narrow circle in the centre beyond which the fall off was rapid- think adjacent trees in a row of trees equidistant from camera, or a line of people. Even in good light you need that f2.8 but it is of limited use given most of the picture is at a lower resolution.

This is ALL deliberate of course since the zoom for size is underdesigned: at 24mm it certainly does not cover the sensor. That said the Leitz lens on the Panasonic is far worse, and I do mean a LOT worse. So wait for the next models and curse the people who lead you up the garden path to nowhere but frustration

Nope, mines ok there!

In reply to:

munro harrap: There are comments about the RX10 having a weather-sealed body, but this is not Sony's claim, they just say "weather- resistant".

I take issue with all such claims as microphones , especially those on the top of bodies cannot exactly be waterproof, and even were they so, the water collecting inside the mic grills would surely stop them working (and probably everything else). If these machines were waterproof there would be ads on TV with footage glorifying in the fact, but other than a few AW compacts there is no such footage available from anyone-including Nikon and Canon pro "weather-sealed" bodies, and apparently it is a fact that the D800 is NOT weatherproof, and though the Canon is more so, the corrosion from water-especially salt water affects them as well. That RX10 isn't waterproof, or dustproof. Sony have not ever said it was and will not refund you or do a free repair on one, I bet, if it gets a soaking over the winter outdoors. The FZ1000 has no such pretences.

Good comment Munro.
