Excerpt: This is the fastest cam I have used yet. Ergonomics are near perfect. IQ is decent. I recently spent 6 days driving the Calif coast and returning along the East side of the Sierras. I had my Nikon D750 with 4 lenses, and comparing my daylight shots ...there just isn't much to separate them! Many of the features, like pano and 4k, I haven't yet tried. In cam HDR doesn't impress me, but then normal DR does.
I was extremely disappointed with the potential of this lens

Summary: The Panasonic FZ1000 had severe reduction in picture quality at the 400mm end. I tried it with and without stabilization on and off a tripod and got similar results. The pictures were less than 70% of what I can get from my Panasonic FZ200 at similar zoom. I was extremely disappointed with the potential of this lens. I would not be able to use this camera if it were given to me. I may have gotten a bad copy.
Excerpt: I'm not going to write a long review, mainly because others can explain every nut and bolt of the camera. I will say however that after taking this camera for its first big test at a big auto race in Gainseville, FL I can say that I have a winner of a camera. I wanted a camera that offered an upgrade in shooting speed and image quality compared to my last camera (An FZ35), and this one delivers. Imagine quality? Excellent.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: I own three EOS DSLRs and a bunch of highest quality lenses and Canon speedlights but was looking for something that would "do it all" in a lightweight travel camera. Of course the EOS cameras are the best, once everything is set up, but you can't often carry all that gear everywhere. Thus I picked this travel camera and it has exceeded my expectations. It also has some special features that are unusual and cool: Very fast focus.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Short Lag Time
Summary: I got tired of lugging my Canon 7d with 35-350 L lens so thought I'd give this a try as a telephoto replacement. What a great little (to me, but maybe not so little to most folks) camera! Shooting at 200 ISO and comparing to my Canon at the same focal length equivalents, then pixel peeping the RAW files, it is about 90% as sharp as the larger format camera with high end lens. It is certainly the camera I'll have with me all the time.
since the camera should give an error or something like that. The camera otherwise works as I expected

Summary: I may have got a defective camera. The camera seemed new when I got it, but the box was not sealed and there were no indication that box had any original seal. I was using the "Transcend 32 GB High Speed 10 UHS-3 Flash Memory Card 95/60 MB/s". The camera froze once when I was shooting 4 K video. I had to take out the battery in order to restore the camera.
Excerpt: Have had the FZ1000 for about 3 weeks and am loving it. I think of it as the "big brother" to my FZ200. A bit larger but not too, and not too heavy. I thought long and hard about adding a dslr or mirror less camera, but just decided that changing lenses just isn't for me anymore, and the FZ1K does 95% of what my shooting requires. Love the fast and accurate focus, the viewfinder is wonderful, and i use the articulating screen - a lot. (too old to bend like used to).
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good All-purpose Camera, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: I wanted a camera with lots of options, easy to use, and most importantly excellent image quality. That's what I got. This is the most nearly perfect camera I have ever had. I didn't expect the intelligent digital zoom to provide decent quality images. In that respect the camera exceeds my expectations because it gives me images that look as if they were shot with an 800 mm lens and image quality is excellent.
Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent video, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time
