New Panasonic Lumix FZ2000 — Would Appear To Still Fall Behind Sony RX10 III Bar Touchscreen.

I could be wrong BUT the only ‘biggie’ I see in this purported specification is the “touch panel”, i.e., touch screen. I guess that will support touch screen AF. So that would be good.

But that would appear to be it.

The increase in zoom from 400 to 480 is decent, i.e., a 20% increase, but it is a long ways short of the 600mm (at f/4) offered by Sony.

Yes, most likely the FZ2000 will have better video quality.

And it probably will be cheaper than the (overpriced) Sony RX10 III.

But in my experience, when it comes to bridge cameras, the MAIN thing you are looking for is the reach. IF I was into a 1″ Bridge I would not get the FZ2000. I would go with the Sony, despite the price. 120mm of zoom, at one stop larger aperature, at the high end, cannot be sneezed at.

Panasonic’s Iconic FZ1000 Stacks Up Quite Well Against The New Nikon’s 1″ DL24-500 On Paper.

There was at least one error/omission in the “DPReview” comparison that kind of incorrectly tilted the comparison — and that had to do with “image stabilization”. The Nikon DL24-500, per the Nikon specs, is said to have:

The “IS” issue, notwithstanding, the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000, which I owned for 7-months (till April 2016 and took over 7,000 pictures), is indeed quite the camera.

It is impressive that the FZ1000, 2 years older than the Nikon, offers twice the max. ISO and can hold its own when it comes to sensor size and resolution. Plus, right now it has the HUGE advantage that it is available while the latest rumors are that the Nikon DL24-500 will NOT be available till October 2016 (if that). Plus the FZ1000 is (at least) $200 cheaper.

That $200 could make a big difference.

And this is BUT the paper comparison.

In reality, unless Nikon screws up badly, the DL24-500 should be a much superior camera with newer and superior technology when it comes to the sensor, autofocus, vibration reduction and color rendering.

PLUS, the Nikon offers a dedicated exposure compensation dial on the top plate. Not having a dedicated dial for exposure compensation was my biggest peeve against the Panasonic. Plus there is a touch-screen not to mention the added 100mm of reach.

IF the $200 is not a factor, come October the Nikon DL24-500 should be the better choice. But we will have to wait and see. In the meantime the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 is a tried-and-tested entity that delivers very good results.
