I'm quite happy with my FZ1000. I used to to replace an older DSLR rig - a Sony Alpha 700 with the "Bigma" 50 - 500 lens -, and feel I'm getting the same quality from the FZ1000.
One thing I'm like very well is that the autofocus is very quick - seems many "bridge" cameras are rather slow in that regard.
