well i have the older version which was acualy made for video VCL HG1758 when i bought it was about 400 dollar in my part of the world , full metal housing and way more heavy then the DH version and imho opticly much better, i still have it somewhere,

Yep - I had that one too - before the DH1758...I had been using the HG1758 with my F717 camera, and when I went to the H1, I decided the smaller and lighter DH1758 would be easier to lug around - so I sold the HG1758 and got the DH instead.  I didn't feel there was any real loss of IQ between them - at least for the superzooms of the time - but I don't know if the DH would have performed as well on the F717 - the HG was beautifully matched to that camera.

I had the DH0758 as well - unfortunately due to the protruding rear housing, it won't mate to any e-mount lenses - so I actually traded it in to Amazon - it was part of what paid for my A6000!
