Yes and yes. But it does have a large sensor :)

So the zoom control is the little slide buttons on the side of the lens? I doubt is these would give you much precision in the zoom. And the image seems as though it would drift out of focus until the software can catch up. I've shot some live events with the GH2 using a B4 adapter and putting a 2/3" lens on the body. It works great if your on sticks. If your not, you'll need a different setup.

You are absolutley right Bryan. Useless for most of us, but who knows, maybe it's fine.

Bottom line for me is these cameras are consumer gadgets that happend to shoot great video. I really need to get a regular video camera to supplement these things, they are so much work.

I think they are tantalizing. I see them along the same lines as the Red Camera where you have the record module and can build out from that. Unfortunately it may take Panasonic another generation of these cameras to get there. When I talked to Panasonic about the GH2 at NAB I was told they considered these cameras as consumer cameras and not to expect much more in lens development.

But then there's the AF100 which uses the same lenses as the GH2.

A $3500 videocamera with the same 35mm/FF sensor as the Canon 5D MKII with fixed zoom lens will not happen IMHO. The NEX-VG20 has the same APS-C sensor as the NEX-5N APS-C mid-range mirrorless compact.

Hmm the message says to contact Panasonic if you have an idea.. I can't seem to find an emailaddress suitable though.. anyone have one?

I would desperatly want the composite out to be enabled for live viewing, especially since I can't downconvert the HDMI output to composite..
