When considering a particular fixed lens bridge camera, is a comparable kit with an interchangeable lens camera and lens necessarily going to be more expensive? Or going to have some other disadvantages? I’m in particular considering the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000.
I currently only own a Canon PowerShot SX230 HS and am looking to get a camera with a larger sensor to get better image quality. The Panasonic sprung out because it also offers a zoom level that’s at least as good as what I’m used to, has been well-reviewed and is well within my budget.
I haven't looked into interchangeable lens cameras much because it’s not a feature I’m particularly looking for at the moment, and I figure the added flexibility will come at an added expense. Or is that a mistaken assumption? It might still be nice to have the option to try other lenses later on, especially if getting a comparable camera and starter lens is not going to be that much more expensive. Concrete suggestions for a comparable kit are more than welcome.
