In this review, we will be comparing FZ1000 II and RX10 IV, two Large Sensor Superzoom cameras from Panasonic and Sony. Panasonic FZ1000 II was introduced to market in February 2019 and Sony RX10 IV was launched in September 2017. There is 17 months difference between FZ1000 II and RX10 IV so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger FZ1000 II, especially in sensor tech.
