    What does this really mean? Remove the stock lense, use the sony special adaptor and attach nikon lenses? True or false?
    Well, it's Sony, so you can bet a dollar that they mean the lenses used by Sony DSLRs. If Sony DSLRs can use Nikon lenses, then yes. But if Sony DSLRs can't use Nikon lenses, then no.

    As for release time, there's no mention at all. Could be six months, could be a year, there's no indication given.

    no... they are selling lenses with 1/3" projection area. Like Canon XL1s , XL2, XLH1 series.

    ITs not interchangeable in the sense that it lets you use cinema lenses. just other 1/3" lenses.

    I am wondering if this new HDV camera could be a better option than the Canon XH-A1 I am going to buy.

    Any idea of the price and the possibility of using 35mm lenses fro Nikon?

    Thanks

    Strange little deal, here. Can't tell if they're saying you can use SLR lenses but either way... I wonder how much that sucker costs.

    Anyone in the pot for a 15k body? =P

    $6500 for HDV? Not worth it no matter what the lenses do.

    "Sony\'s future HDV cams due out Q1 2008. Handheld unit priced about e6500, shoulder version about e8000"


    It looks like that the prices are in Euros! So with exchange rate 8962usd and the shoulder 11000usd?

    ... I think I will order the XH-A1...

    Cheers

    Long post, sorry, but:
    Well, the HVX200 is pretty much 2 years old now, and could definitely prosper with an upgrade. Pana's been very successful with it, but can't sit idle. 32gig P2's are around the corner and the size of this little beast is still a great advantage, especially when shooting docs, or like a gorilla. I've been on the fence for a year, 'cause I rent when I need, but buying is just around the corner with the new HVX, I'm certain. I've heard the blues about the battery mount tabs breaking, the built-in lens being sub-par to canon (even to Mr. Carl), and the lack of certain HD ports. And shouldn't 100mbs just blow away a max of 25mbs hdv? Why is there even any need for comparisons?! But just look what happened the last time Pana paid attention...!
    Hopefully the new HVX drops (has dropped) the DVtape drive to make more room for serious upgrades. How many of you actually use it? (I just "unleash" my old Pana GS400! Haha! :>) Here's to Panasonic maximizing the HVX's size/quality ratio to blow away a thousand upcoming alternatives. As a serious doc maker, I just want the best hardware to be cost effective. You can stop prancing. I don't care who you are. Just deliver me the goods!!!!
