dnwitt: I just got back from a cruise to Cuba and a woman on the cruise had this camera. I have a Nikon D60 camera with a couple of lenses. When I'm traveling I typically use my 55-300 lens for telephoto shots and my Nikon Coolpix point and shoot for the quick and easy and near shots. We are going on a Baltic Sea cruise in May and I'm thinking something like this camera would give me the versatility I'm looking for without lugging around so many cameras and lenses! Any thoughts or advice?

I used my FZ1000 for trips to China and Turkey and was very happy with the results, and far better than carrying my Nikon D7200 plus Nikon 18 - 300mm lens. I also shoot video and so for me this makes one light and versatile camera a no brainer. In fact, I think now that the only possible reason to use DSLRs if you're doing professional gallery work with large prints.
As you probably know, this camera has been superseded by the FZ2500 which I think is more of a video upgrade than photo, so you'd probably be happy with the FZ1000.
