    I got the z190, for me filming sports the extra zoom and lower price was worth it over the z280 (you can't toggle the digital zoom without it being like a jump cut zoom). However z190 does suffer in low light, so in less pro-arenas (with less light) it struggles and I need to toggle 9-12 db boost, but in Full HD it is clean enough for being no problem in sports. Only real problem I have is that the auto-focus stopped working (i lent it to 2 colleagues on a gig, and after that it didn't work...). Haven't bothered fixing AF since for the work I do and rent it out for it isn't needed. Only thing I really would like from the z280 is the ability to have the SDI clean and the HDMI dirty with overlay or vice versa, the z190 gets the same feed to both outputs.
