|Black Friday, Downtown Sunnyvale|
Battery life - WAY better than the Canon. I managed more than 700 pics (with battery to spare!) vs. barely 200ish on the Canon.
Operational speed - everything is just snappier on the FZ1000. And, of course, the frame rates department is no contest.
EVF - obviously, since the Canon doesn't have one. But the Panny's EVF is really nice, no lag, looks great and super clear. Even in low light it's pretty good!
Zoom - the zoom range is great! Should be good enough for 90% of all applications.
Ergonomics - So many customizable buttons! I basically ran out of buttons to assign cause everything I would want is accessible directly! And I've made so it can be used with one hand for most situations!
AF - way fast in good light, struggles a bit in low light still though.
Screen - I hate tilting screens...or ones that just flip up and down. The FZ1000 has the flipping/rotating one that you can angle to almost anything you want, which is the way to go if you are to have one. I blame Sony for making the stupid tilting one popular and other manufacturers for copying them.

|Dynamic range is admirable...for a small sensor cam|
Now, for things that I miss on the G7x:
f1.8 - enough said. The FZ1000 is f2.8 to f4.0, vs. f1.8 to f2.8 on the Canon.
ND filter - like I said, base ISO 80 compensates for it a little, but the ND filter was nice (although I guess you could put on 62mm filters on the Panny).
Build-quality - the FZ1000 feels a little plasticky and cheap and a little light. The G7x is almost all metal and feels better made.
Size - obviously the Canon is super portable and even pocketable, vs. the FZ1000 is almost the size of a DSLR.
