Speak of the devil... I just had this red line problem pop up last week and was wondering if my AF was on its way out. Bully!

Re: AG-AF100 Firmware Ver 1.24 released

I haven't been able to sort out this free upgrade from the one Panasonic features on their website for $250. Also, has anyone installed and used it yet, for 60p shooting? I'm wondering if any overheating problems could develop with longer segments. I was expecting there would be some talk here by now, about a comparison between the AG-AF100a and the GH3.
