Why is 1080p 60fps so important out of a sudden? Last time I checked "no 30fps" was the top issue. Why people seem to cannot live without 60fps now?

The reason it's important to me is that the quality of the RX100 II video was better than many of the camcorders I had in the past.. to the point I was able to replace my camcorder with the RX100 II. Filming kids outdoors, 60p is very noticable compared to 30p.

Of course this is all moot if you do no plan or want to use your camera as you camcorder, but for me I want my camera to do both, and do it well.  That all being said, I'm *still* tempted to switch as getting an image-stabilized 24-120mm with a f/3.8-f/7.4 FF DOF equivalent in a small-ish package is pretty amazing.
