Pros + Sharpness and colour at the upper AVCHD limit
+ Many manual controls
+ 1080p50
 
Cons - No Expanded Focus
- No touch focus in manual mode
 
Conclusion Not only does Panasonic offer 50p, it also brings enough wide angle (which even isn´t affected by the active image stabilisation), good low-light performance and colors, great sharpness and lots of manual control.Also nice is that the 3D features are now offered as an alternative add-on option.
