Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000 Review

 

The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ2000 (also known as the Panasonic FZ2500) is a super-zoom camera featuring a 20x zoom lens equivalent to a focal range of 24-480mm, 20.1 megapixel 1-inch MOS sensor, 3-inch 1040K-pixel rotating LCD touchscreen, 2,359k OLED...

Panasonic FZ2500 Review

 

Combining a 20.1-megapixel sensor with a 24-480mm equivalent built-in zoom lens, the Panasonic FZ2500 offers solid imaging performance. The camera can also record 4K video at up to 30 frames per second and offers Panasonic's excellent 4K Photo features.

Rugged camera body with many physical controls; Generally excellent image quality & high ISO performance for its class; Versatile zoom lens; Fast and accurate autofocus; Unlimited 4K video recording; Fast full-res burst mode with generous buffers.

Continuous autofocus performance struggles at telephoto end; Slow buffer clearing (no UHS-II support); Lens produces soft corners at most focal lengths.

Panasonic Lumix FZ2000 / FZ2500 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix FZ2000, or FZ2500 as it's called in North America, is a high-end DSLR-styled super-zoom camera with a 20x / 24-480mm range, 1inch 20 Megapixel sensor, large EVF, fully-articulated touchscreen and a wealth of pro movie options...

20x lens range with internal zooming ; Built-in 2, 4 and 6 stop ND filter ; 5-speed smooth, stable, slow zooming ; Articulated touch-screen ; C4k or UHD movies, unlimited recording (within battery / card) ; Mic and headphone jacks. HDMI with 10 bit...

Poor battery life and can't be charged in-camera over USB ; No weather sealing ; 4k movies and 4k Photo employ a fairly tight crop ; Results not as crisp as Sony RX10 III

The Lumix FZ2000 / FZ2500 is Panasonic's flagship super-zoom, or if you prefer the term, 'bridge camera'. It's an update to the still available Lumix FZ1000 and like that model is based around a 1 inch sensor for better quality than the tiny sensors in...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2000

 

The Panasonic FZ2000 is a bridge camera, but perhaps not in a form you'd expect. It's designed to be an all-in-one solution for those who don't want the hassle and expense of carrying around multiple different lenses.
