Here we are comparing two Bridge cameras from Nikon and Panasonic. Nikon P1000 was introduced to market in July 2018 and Panasonic FZ2500 was launched in September 2016. There is 22 months difference between P1000 and FZ2500 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger P1000, especially in sensor tech.
Nikon P1000 has a 16.0MP 1/2.3-inch sensor whereas Panasonic FZ2500 has a 20.0MP 1-inch sensor. This will be an interesting match up as even though these two cameras doesn't have the exact same body type, they are both ranked amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Nikon P1000 is ranked #10
