New Sony Handycams HDR-CX760 and HDR -PJ760

Sony at CES had quite a few new cams, including the CX760, the replacement for last years CX700.

Interesting improved features include-
New balanced steadyshot, whole lens block now moves to give a 13 times improvement over last year, seems to work very well.
New CZ lens replaces the G lens and has a larger 52mm filter thread, I wonder how much of a improvement in quality at the tele end this will offer over last years poor G lens in the CX700 and NX70?
Face mode now works to focus sound as well as exposure
Viewfinder has slightly better field of view and tilts.
New GPS maps with more detail.

The PJ760 is the same spec with a projector added, Sony claim is twice as bright as last year.

Some worthwhile improvement.

The lens may well be the same size inside the new larger body which has the filter threads on it. I too am looking forward to it and wonder if a new NX70 is in the works. I like some of the extra controls of the NX70 but do not really need the water and dust proofing that clearly add to the cost. The image stabilizer is good on my CX700 compared to the XR500 but I still like the AE shift control on the XR500 aseems to have greater range thean the CX700. Would really like a Sony competitor to the Canon XA10 with things like gain limit etc. A model somewhere between the CX series and the NX70.

Looking at the specs, folks help me out, I am not seeing anything that great that would make me want to upgrade from my CX700? (Hope I am missing something, :o) )

If you do mostly hand held then the new stabilizer may be great as well as the lens may also be better. That's my only interest but would love a better menu system and gain limit from the NX70.
