    Yeah, better DoF and probably better low light than the other three cameras in this price range (HPX170/EX1/new Canon) with the option to slap on a really nice prime when the situation calls for it? I think I can live with that.

    Can we please leave the format discussion to other threads?

    As I've said before; the P2 request has been put forward a million times in this thread already. Let's move on, please.



    Hi Gabe!

    Hopefully they'll be on it. But, given the price difference of a 1/3" lens to a 2/3", I don't have a lot of hope for the difference between 2/3" and 4/3".

    So, yeah, let's hope for a motorized zoom on the GH1 lens, it's already a 10:1 zoom with proper auto and manual focus, etc.
    Barry; yeah, I know about the physical lens compatibility issue.

    However if they are going to provide any facility for motorized lenses; then I'd hope (request) they use the industry standard camera-lens connector to do it.

    Better low light with the 10x zoom? It depends. f4.0 (AF-100) requires more than 4x the ISO of f1.9 (EX1/3). Will the AF-100 have an ISO1600 so clean that it will compare with the ISO400 equivalent of the EX1/3?

    So correct me if I am wrong- if the GH1 kit lens is used (or such equivalent), why would I buy this new camera? It will yield about the same DOF and be actually worst in low light then EX1 and cost the same? why bother then- I'll just buy another EX1 and at least I don't have to deal with AVCHD.

    Here is another rumor from dvinfo:
    "Last news are saying the Af100 will feed the HD-SDI with 4:2:0, not 4:2:2...
    The NanoFlash will be useless, and so is the SDI output.
    I hope it's a mistake. If it's not, I don't think Panasonic will sell a lot."
    Anyone can confirm? However if it is true it will be a consumer cam with high price tag.

    You will be able to get shallow DOF and good low light with the fast primes. Until it comes out we don't know how it will compare in low light when using small apertures.

    Even if it is 4:2:0, there is an advantage in recording in a better codec. The actual color sampling is only a small part of image quality. A better codec will improve motion, reduce luma and chroma artifacts, etc.

    Jan said on one of the trade show floor video clips that the camera records 4:2:0.
