Re: $1000 price point

so if we look at $1k price point we have:

G20 with good AF and low light but no 60p

pj710v with 60p and best stabilization, good mic

x920 with 60p 3 sensor, control ring

Well, except that regarding controls, the GH G20 wins hands down.  It not only has a control ring around the lens like the Panasonic does, but in addition it has an awesome control dial on the rear of the camcorder right where your thumb is.

For example, if you want to take it easy, and let the camcorder do most of the work for you, but still be able to adjust exposure, do this:  Set the G20 into Manual, and then choose Program Mode for the exposure.   Then set the rear control dial to exposure compensation.   You can then fine tune your exposure very quick and easily using your thumb. 
That is something neither the Panasonic or Sony can do.
