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.

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.
