    Wow! Interchangable lenses, a small profile, 4/3-inch sensor for that elusive DOP look.... oh my. I can't wait to see what footage looks like.

    Functionality of this looks promising.
    But man does it ugly.

    It looks like a piece of puffed plastic.
    But beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And this thing could produce some stunning images.

    Price point seems a bit high. If I'm looking at that kind of money, I'm going to scrape up a bit more and get a 1DsIV. Just as a photographer/film maker, it's a better option ...at that price point.

    If feature films and the finale of "House" are being done on the 5DII, this thing really needs to be coming in at more like $3,500 IMO with its extra goodies.

    I don't know what shocks me more - that Panasonic even announced this camera (at $6K no less!), or that anyone could think that this is expensive for what it is. If it's built specifically for video and not still photography (which I think we can all agree is a pretty safe assumption), it's going to smoke the 5DII & 1DsIV all day long - because those are still photography cameras with an added video feature. They are not video cameras, or digital cinema cameras. They can be used as such, but they are not built for it, and the limitations imposed by that fact are painfully apparent when you use them.

    Building a digital cinema camera is not easy. I feel like with the AF100, Panasonic is giving yet another firm nod to the small-budget and independent producers that have always loved their products. They understand the look we want, and it seems like they've worked hard to give that to us in the most useful & affordable package possible. It seems entirely reasonable that they're introducing this at a price point and feature list that makes it perfect for many independent filmmakers, but still doesn't undercut Panny's high-end line of cameras. Everybody wins on this one - and it won't even require the $4,000 worth of accessories just to make it usable! ;)

    Thanks for listening, Panasonic - I look forward to using the HF100 with my lumix lenses, PL mount primes, and all the legacy glass I get my grubby hands on!

    So true.. The limited record times and the overheating are enough of a reason to want something else.. I was really disappointed with both of those things..... Not too mention the ergonomics and the overall layout of the cameras...
