J1 for video ...

Ok ... I am now deciding between the J1 and the GX1. The latter has image quality to 6400 that rivals my D7000 ( WOW ) and has to-die-for video ...

The former is supposed to have excellent video, but I have not seen evidence of it yet. The videos I've seen are not crisp like the GX1 video here, nor is their sound anywhere close.

So ... does someone know of a concert in a closer setting, more similar to the Panny video? I really want to like the J1 as it is cheaper and can run my AFS lenses with amazing crop factor. But the GX1 is frankly a tour de force in both still and video (Panny is always good at the latter) ...
