Is that a beaver or muskrat?
Muskrat. Long skinny tail (not visible in the picture.)
I'm still waiting for the perfect superzoom
Panasonic got pretty close with a 400 mm (effective) zoom and constant f2-something aperture at all focal lengths, on a sensor that's one inch (I think). There's definite progress being made.
Yeah, the FZ1000 is at the top of my wishlist at the moment, and the LX100 right next to it, sharing top spot.
The LX100 (or Leica version) is the camera to have if you'll never have another camera.
The FZ1000 is f2..8 at the wide end, f4 at the long end (400mm), but with a 1" sensor. The FZ200 is the constant f2.8 25-600mm equiv, but a much smaller sensor.
I can live with the f/4. I have an earlier FZ, the 100, with a sliding scale aperture... Its OK.
