I really like the camera and wish I had the $$ to purchase, but...man, that's not a small deal.
does that mean there is no 'push focus like on the z1? i shoot a lot of live events and am constantly running around and shooting different things at different distances, obviously i cnt stop recording, does this mean i cant alter the focus or iris while im running around and shooting??? wow...halt the order.. please tell me iv got this all wrong...

Yes, breathe easy, you've got it all wrong. The quote referred to the focus magnifier which switches off automatically when you start to record. You can zoom, focus and adjust the iris while recording but note that zoom and focus are apparently done with the same motor so that both cannot be done simultaneously. I believe the iris is a separate servo but am not certain of this.

Yea I discovered that...made me sad. I guess since this is a footage topic i`ll toss up the 2 videos I made so far. They were done with very little planning and not nearly enough light,tough with all the dark hardwood around too. We also had to block out the windows because the evening sun mixed with indoor light was casting all sorts of harsh varying halos on things. Still look ok in my book.
