In this review, we will be comparing G3 X and FZ1000, two Large Sensor Superzoom cameras from Canon and Panasonic. Canon G3 X was introduced to market in June 2015 and Panasonic FZ1000 was launched in June 2014. There is 12 months difference between G3 X and FZ1000 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger G3 X, especially in sensor tech.
We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Large Sensor Superzoom cameras. Out of 10 cameras in this class, Canon G3 X is ranked #7
with an overall score of 70 and Panasonic FZ1000 is ranked #4
with an overall score of 71.
