PAL vs. NTSC was a big deal in the analog world and, unfortunately, in the digital world they are still somewhat different animals that could affect your reselling the FZ200. The video frame rates differ (30/60/120/240 for NTSC, 25/50/100/200 for PAL), so there's the possibility that the NTSC camera or video may not play back properly on a PAL TV.

On the plus side, the NTSC camera will not have the 30 minute video limitation that the European models have.

You learn something new every time you press the shutter

In 720p but surely still in 1080?

Nevertheless I agree with the sentiment it shouldn't really matter especially because most modern telly's can handle ntsc input and playback these days and you can always sell back to North America, though you may not get as much doing that.
