All bells and whistles.
But at double the price of the 24 zoom DCM-FZ45 when new, I will hold on my old girl.

Does this retain the digital zoom of the original FZ1000?
The various reviews make no mention of it.

I have the older version and find it great for almost everything. You don't need to use high ISO as the stabilisation and wide aperture help enormously. The long zoom allows you to frame the shot precisely therefore no deterioration of image quality results from having to crop. What's more you don't need lots of heavy lenses.

Yes there are options for i.Zoom and Digital Zoom in the menus on the camera.

For the Josh:

There are some infos on web, that FZ1000 MkII uses different sensor to the original Year 2014 one. Most notable mention was published in Digital Trends. Now, have you heard anything relevant to this matter, be it from Panasonic or elsewhere?

Or the Panasonic claims on better low-light ability for the MkII are based only on improved Venus image processor.

Hi Natureale, I'll check with Panasonic and get back to you. Thanks, Josh

Looks like the Panasonic people aren't prone to give real info in normal time. Wink
One just doesn't get why hiding info on the MkII sensor (and some other things too). Wink

Hi Natureale,

Panasonic has confirmed that it is the same sensor in the FZ1000 II, as used in the FZ1000.

HI Josh,

Thank you for your feedback.

However, I'm just wondering why Hillary Grigonis of Sigital Trends wrote about different sensor in MkII.

Either Grigonis got and published untrue spec or Panasonic is hiding something. Blush Wink
