Someone should do a test with the higher end codec footage vs the regular, green screen and/or color correction, to see if one holds up better than the other. THAT will tell you if the "better" codec really is better, lest we have this message board insanity until the end of time.

Now "early 2015" might mean April 31st, but just getting some details would be great.
Here's hoping for sooner than that. At this point, seeing nothing more than a 4:2:2 retread of the AX100's 4K codec would be more than a little maddening. I, too, am hoping they've managed 60p.

After such a wait, however, I'd also be a bit worried about "We're sorry, but this upgrade applies only to serial numbers greater than ########." Because, let's be honest: As a firmware-only thing, it's hard to imagine what could be taking them so long.

Edius will edit XAVC-L just like Premiere with no transcoding. My version of Vegas 12 will not work with the files but will edit the transcoded XAVC i frame for instance. Edius edits the native XAVC-L files just like XAVC-S or XAVC or AVCHD. I did not shoot both XAVC-L as well as AVCHD on the X70 when I had the camera for a test but shot XAVC-L on the X70 and AVCHD with my NX30U side by side both at 60P. Both looked similar to me with the NX30U just slightly more sensitive. Neither as sensitive as my NX5U. Not a big enough difference to my NX30U for me to change for the type of shoots I do.
