Panasonic FZ1000 Review : Sensor Performance and Test Results

From DxOMark Conclusion :

With Sony being extremely competitive in so many markets simultaneously, it’s hardly surprising to see competitors start to hit back. The Panasonic DMC-FZ1000 is unashamedly targeting the RX10, which was a unique proposition. While the Sony remains tempting for its high-speed constant aperture zoom, the Panasonic’s extra reach, 4K video capture, similar (if not quite as impressive) sensor performance and slightly lower price means it’s a strong contender in this new class of camera.

Panasonic FZ1000 features a super useful 25-400mm 16x optical zoom lens which has an F2.8-4.0 aperture range, 0.09 second auto-focusing speed, a 2,359k OLED Live View Finder (LVF) and a 3-inch 921-K dot LCD display.
