The pictures have already been confirmed as faked, however it is probable that any upgrade will be to Full HD 1080.

... and then there's the FZ40, the REAL successor to the FZ38.

The afore-mentioned FZ100 is Panasonic's top FZ model now.

These two seem to have the same sensor but another forum indicates the FZ100 has a CMOS sensor. making the high speed burst etc possible.

The FZ100 has MOS, the FZ48 not. That's why the FZ40's burst rate is only half of the FZ100's.

Default Almost everything I wanted

The FZ100 looks like it incorporates almost everything I wanted in a new FZ. It has the great burst speed for 15 frames, full HD video, and a few other tweaks. I hope it stacks the burst shots like the other cameras with this feature do.

The LCD is larger and looks to be improved. Articulated or not, it'll work for me. The "intelligent zoom" (whatever that is?) at 32X is certainly all I'll ever need.

I like the in camera video dividing. I wish they had included in camera panorama, but that's a minor thing and certainly not a deal killer.

The weight went up to 19 oz but that's still pretty handy and a good trade off for the extra features.

It looks to me like Panasonic will remain on top of the superzoom field.

If true, the camera will have outstanding full HD video capability,
but its use in still photography is questionable.
I think that the Panasonic MOS sensor may well battle to deliver CCD type
performance and probably the reason that the new G series cameras uses a
CMOS sensor that I understand is not from Panasonic?
Interesting times indeed!
