Thanks Douglas. I'm getting so weary of these negative "reports" and statements from people who have never handled the camera. Much of this disinformation does emanate from boards supporting "competing" SD camera's - although IMO at this price point Sony has no competition at present. NAB may reveal new HDV products, but only JVC is in a position to really upset the applecart if they release a $ 5000 HDV camera with lens interchangeability! As for the Z2 - it's gonna be a long wait.

NAB will probably also reveal a very interesting Panasonic product line that competes with the Z1. The Panasonic "Z1-killer", rumored to be called HDX100, will cost "less than US$10k", will use solid state recording without GOPs but based on the DVCPROHD codec (same as the Varicam) and will support at least 720p as well as SD. At least one new model will support true 24p and there is also the possibility of a 1080i version, whose rumored name is HDX400.
