A replacement for the FZ 1000 is strongly rumoured. The timing is delayed apparently due to recent earthquakes in Japan which has also affected other new camera releases from Nikon etc. Will it be the Fz2000? It will be very timely to compete with the new Sony Rx10mk3 at 24-600 and Nikon 24-500 bridge camera also delayed. The latter is rumoured to have hybrid AF system of phase/contrast.
