The reach on the VX870 zoom is a tiny bit better and when 4K is output to 720p -- the real benefit of 4K -- there's a bit more room in the frame to zoom and pan and still maintain sharpness. Both cameras are great at this, though, and the effective reach for clear HD nature photography is astounding.
If I only had one $900 4K camera on a desert island, it would be the FZ1000. If I wanted more room to pack food and water, I'd take the VX870!
The audio is great. Bass is a little low for my taste but thats a preference. I have used the ap to control the camera remotely. It's impressive.
Recommended for a good 4K camera under $1K.
