Panasonics image stabilisation borders on witchery at times but at well over £400 and closer to £500, I would want the ability to use an external mic.

Doesn't this camera have a 50X optical zoom instead of 59-61? This is the only website I have found that says it is 59-61?

Does the VW-CTR1 works with camera, something like Panasonic GX7?
