Of the three, the HC-920 is priced the lowest and is the lightest and most compact.

The Sony PJ710 is not that much larger, and the weight difference is only 555 grams for the Sony vs 417 grams for the Panasonic.   Both are significantly lighter than the upcoming Canon HF G30 ( 765 grams ).  My Canon HF G10 is 549 grams, and I find it to be very comfortable and light enough to hold for long periods.   The Sony should feel the same.

A super light camcorder really contributes nothing to holding a camcorder steady.  Of these camcorders, I think that only the size and the weight of the HF G30 is of concern.

Also, the price difference between the HC-X920 and the PJ710 at B&H Photo is only a difference of $48, which is quite negligible.  Not enough to factor in the decision making process, in my opinion.
