The rented FZ1000 II arrived this afternoon, and as the battery was already fully charged, I immediately loaded a card and headed out the door for a walk around the yard. It feels smaller than it looks in photos and simulations, and it took me a few minutes to figure out the AF spot setup. I also played with MF a bit. I ended up with some blurry pics, but I got some pretty good ones, too. My first impression from using it for an hour or so is that the IQ seems to be an improvement over the FZ2500 I previously tried.
