    I just bought G6+14-140 kit right before the FZ1000 announcement, what a bad timing :S So now I have a dilemma

    I was planning to use G6 + 14-140mm as travel camera since it is light and small for this kind of zoom range, and use as B-cam for GH4, but the spec with FZ1000 is mighty tempting, and it have the same color profile as GH4 (Cine D/V) which make colour grading even easier, let along the 4K recording option and 120fps 1080P slowmo which is even more useful than GH4's 96fps.

    Should I dump the just bought G6 kit (stiil in transit) or keep it so I can still use other lens on it.

    For stills, the G6 has the upper hand, for video, the FZ1000.

    Do you need what the FZ1000 offers?

    If not then stay with your G6.

    For travel photography, the G6/14-140 II is the winner hands down. It's smaller and lighter, and allows you to swap on a fast prime for night photography (15/1.7, 17/1.8, 20/1.7, 25/1.8). With the FZ1000, you're stuck with the 2.8-4.0 max aperture.
