If this has an f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range (remember the FZ20..?) what a massive advantage this will give the Panny over ALL it's competitors.
If this is the ONLY upgrade,it's worth it...!
And dare I say- has the potential to put a dent in DSLR/mirrorless sales...!
I'm salivating.....

Zoom range and Res same as last time. New EVF too.

Looks like a real update with no gimmicks.

Good strategy going for the 'intelligent' Superzoom segment.

The specifications are listed at B&H. Anyone going to pre-order?

I think I'm in love. (not with that price though. Maybe on Black Friday?)

So what is the big difference between the 150 and this one? Won't the 150 come down in price now too?
