Leica and Panasonic have an interesting working relationship. Some Panasonic cameras have Leica lenses that are produced in Panasonic's factory following Leica quality control measures. And some Panasonic cameras are essentially rebadged as Leica mod...
Inch sensor
Large maximum aperture and 16x zoom range
Extensive feature set
Screen not touch sensitive
Bulky for a 1, inch sensor camera
More expensive than the Panasonic F 1000
The Panasonic FZ1000 is an excellent bridge camera and the Leica V-Lux is almost exactly the same for a bit more money. The JPEG files that it produces look a little better when viewed at 100% on screen, but the differences are minor at normal viewin...

Super, fast AF system
Great image stabilisation system
Excellent image and video quality
No weather sealing is a shame
Almost double the price of the F 1000
Lens not the longest nor brightest in class
It may not be perfect, but its well-rounded feature set and strong performance across many areas make the FZ2500 / FZ2000 a fine superzoom performer......

Key Features

Weight

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
