Robemo: It's a bit confusing review which contains some errors/bad choices:

1. The comparison at 400mm shows that the Panasonic focused on the orange crane, the Sony on the white building behind it, making that comparison useless.
2. Why using JPEG's to compare lens quality in the comparison tool? JPEG rendering has never been Panasonics strong point. When you download the RAW files and process them equally, you will find the difference less shocking and at some focal ranges (around 135mm for instance) far less than the JPEG's suggest.

In general (and DPR has mentioned it in other reviews) lenses are the weak spot of these 1 inch high density small sensor cameras with complex zooms. Lenses are strained a lot. DPR mentioned in other reviews (of Sony RX100 models I think) how much trouble it took them to find a review model with a proper lens. Lots of fluctuations in lens performance. That's probably why Sony spent so much effort/money in the RX10 III lens.

Very very good observation @Robemo. I think this different focus points exacerbated the FZ-2500's performance, which originally created bad performance with bad copy.

@DPreivew may please do lens comparison as well in studio shot for different focal lengths and update them. ( I know you need really long studio for that and may not be possible). If not, this lens comparison should be done again with touch screen focus to the same point confirmed.

JordanAT: On paper, as a still camera, this looks like a rebadge and a price bump. Similar lens (range, aperture), same sensor, same size, same battery life, same sensitivity, frame rate, and shutter speed range, and a bit heaver. So, for still photogs, they're adding a touchscreen for $400?

@JordanAT,
the latest review proved your points are correct.
@Photomonkey,
Unfortunately the camera failed to impress in video too, having smaller area creating sampled pixels. And as NetMage told it is already there.

And Panasonic wants $99 extra for V-Log L with lower quality 4K output?

Ignacio Yuba: I was really expecting this review as a potential buyer. Now that we have the review i am really dissapointed with it. If you are writing about the pros and cons of a camera, i think that you have to do it based on the most objective perspective that you can achieve and not comparing it on the whole article with another camera. For instance, the crop factor in 4K video is 1.43. It's good or bad on it's own and depending on the user's needs but is not good or bad because the Sony RX100 III's crop factor is 1.09. With all the available information, the reader must decide the best camera for it's needs. I'm not saying that the author was writing against Panasonic in any way but I think that he was dazzled by the RX10 III and he thought that he needed to mention it on every aspect of the review.

Ignacio Yuba,
I share your feelings. But Jeff called a spade, a spade. Jeff has tendency to give importance to fine details and textures in all reviews. Sony RX 10-III see to be having 4K video quality equalling Nikon D500, bettering Canon M5 in detail.
On the other hand, I see that this FZ-2500 is not having any of sharpness/saturation/lens of FZ-1000. I think keeping RX 10-III aside and pulling the FZ-1000 into comparison would bring the same results for FZ-2500 albeit, FZ-1000 would have become winner and not RX10 - III.

junk1: Is this any more reckless than people playing baseball in a neighborhood? Ever get hit by a baseball in the head? Or imagine what a baseball could do to a window or siding. Would we charge the person with reckless endangerment? I'd rather have a drone hit me than a baseball "line drive".

So DSPographer , you believe a bullet or a bronze weight of 100 gms will have less impact than a drone at same speed?

True. And SSD must be more reliable ( I have some Kingstons,Transcends and few SanDisk SD cards go bad, not writable etc ).

Abdallah II: yes the world also needs a professional areal photographer to bring us a photo of a bomber plane because a photo of a fighter pilot who pulls a trigger and drop a bomb in a residential area that kills 100s of innocent people even more powerful then this brave photographers photo of killing a civilian, like WW2 atomic bomber dropping on Japan. i wonder how far humans will reach away from humanity......?

Abdallah,
Saddam Hussain's brother, popularly called 'Chemical Ali' poured chemicals that burned and killed 4,000 villagers in northern Iraq. That was two decades back. Just two weeks back, 1000 muslims joined burnt 70 Hindu owned businesses after looting in West Bengal, India. There will be no photos of these things, because not all killers will allow photographers.

Actually aperture is a little bit less. Meaning need of one step higher iso/higher noise and loss of bokeh that cannot be compensated.

PKDanny: Why $1,200???

There may be lot of buyers, who feel not comfortable to buy something when newer version is available. They may think "for JUST $400 why not go for newer version?" . This camera, while adding ND filter, touch screen, 20% longer range is still not worth the price increase. But people will shed that extra money, since some of them cannot sleep when they feel they could have got a superior one.

Then don't buy it.

the F row is replaced by 'soft controls'. The idea is programmers like me type thousands of key strokes. But we use the F-row about a dozen times only, so, it can be replaced with more accomadating, more funcions.

I could not find sensor size any where. The features did not list what are the ranges for S/A/M or abilities like time lapse.
However this Kodak Ektra or Panasonic CM1 is better than iphone 7, which is thin, but you need to bulk it up. Otherwise can break from 5 ft drop into hard floor, will break from 5 ft drop into concrete floor; These cameras will allow you to edit photos you take, but iphone will not allow you to edit your photos from memory card.
