I have been using the FZ-80 to see if I would get into bird photography. I have loved it! The only downside is that grainyness i get when I have to zoom above 30x. My hooded merganser photos look like Bigfoot sightings! I am looking to upgrade and was wondering what you believe the next step would be. I am willing to spend up to $1000 but would like to know what the next natural step or 2 would be. Nikon 3500 or 7200? Canon eos 77d? IDK .
