My preference is to go by the amount of resolution a camera has before aliasing affects the image (e.g. shooting a test chart such as a zone plate). According to that definition, it's possible that they had more resolution even in 720p mode.

Put that way... fair enough.
...but I'd still rather have a truck load of beer and a little bit of poison.

Daniel:

When referring to other cameras, I was probably, in my mind, but failing to state, that I was considering their use with 35mm adapters, to achieve similar images. And my experience with adapters is limited to the Letus FE and Letus 35a, and some other concoctions of my own. However, in comparing even "un-adapted" footage from these cameras to the limited footage I have shot with the Canon 5D, the "apparent" resolution I am seeing still seems to be better than the FX1, Z1, HV20 or the HVX200. All this, of course, depends on lens choices, lighting conditions, and etc, etc.. and I have not shot test charts to confirm my impressions.
