Thank you.

Video is not important to me. I'm not saying that I won't ever be doing video, but that's not a priority for me. Taking still photos is what I'm really after.

Would there be any advantage of going with the FZ2000 vs the FZ1000? I mean other than price. I'm just weighing all the options right now.

Thank you

The FZ2000 doesn't have NFC, but the FZ1000 does? Really?! I mean if the model line already has NFC, then what's the harm in keeping it in future models? I understand that once the phone and camera are connected, then there's really no reason for NFC, but what if you wanted to share with a friend or are using another wireless device?

Oh well... just a little side rant.

NFC is another battery sucker. It's having it's swan song. A LOT of phone makers are dropping from their latest models. The FZ1000 has wifi. When I shoot my images from home with a tripod (which is 85% of 'em) I set it up to upload them straight to my PC. AND, while it's on that tripod, I have an AC adapter so I NEVER run out of juice. You're choice but to me ~$300 is a goodly chunk of change to shell out for not a lot of improvement. Every article/review I've read pretty much says go with the FZ1000.

NFC is a "nice to have" but not a "need to have."

As I mentioned, I am just information gathering. I don't think I'll be ready to make a purchasing decision until late summer and by that time there will be changes such as model availability and pricing. The FZ1000 is now on my short list, but I haven't made a final decision. Thank you very much for your feedback on the FZ1000. Since I already shoot with the TZ5 and the FZ150 (and I used to own an FZ2), the FZ1000 could be a strong contender.


NFC will not be dropped by phone manufacturers because NFC is what runs Android Pay and Apple Pay. No NFC=no Android/Apple/Samsung Pay/Whatever Pay. (yes... I know Samsung Pay uses a different technology, but it still makes use of NFC).
