In this review, we will be comparing FZ2500 and FZ1000 II, two Large Sensor Superzoom cameras by Panasonic. Panasonic FZ2500 was introduced to market in September 2016 and Panasonic FZ1000 II was launched in February 2018. There is 17 months difference between FZ2500 and FZ1000 II 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.
