I prefer to limit RAW images to when really...

Having had a FZ20 for years and a good dSLR in the last months, I should be "accustomed" to the image quality of Pannies.
Nonetheless, despite some of your pix seems too much "teared up" (I mean...

Wise:

you only have to mount the 72-62 ring so that the Nikon 6T will stay INSIDE of the FZ20 adapter , rather than outside.
By doing so, you'll have the 6T very very close to the extended FZ20...

Actually I am considering FZ18 or FZ28 to substitute the FZ20.

Hi, I have an EOS 40D and its kit 17-85 IS (makes me laugh it should cost nearly as much as I payed my FZ20), and the beautiful primes 50mm F1,4 and 100mm F2,8 macro.

50mm F2,8 is absolutely great...

It's far less than 1000 US $
