No, they're the same lens, but the PD100 was sold in a package that included an add-on wide-angle converter lens.

Rick,

Jap sites indicate that the 950 and PDX10 have exactly the same dimensions: 93 x 99 x 202mm. Weight 750/940 grams (with batt)

Assuming the 953's body is identical to MX5K, the dimensions are 75 x 91 x 179mm. Weight 950/1400 grams (with batt, XLR)

I do have a personal issue hand-holding the 950 (and my hands are pretty normal) and the balance is not as good as 953. Yeah it IS a chunk, IMO. I haven't seen nor touched a PDX10. It may be trivial to others but better check out a 950 wherever it's available in your area to give you a better idea on how a PDX10 would feel on your hands.

Regards

Allan, might the weights that you list be reversed? Don't know, since I haven't touched the 953, but I always assumed it would be lighter than the PDX-10.

On the hand holding issue,my default preference is for a bigger camera, preferably on my shoulder--so the small size of any of these cams is not my first choice. It never feels like I can keep it as still as I'd like. I almost always use 2 hands, sometimes one of them using the LCD screen as an outrigger to steady it.
