Fz2500: How is it as a camcorder replacement?
I am down to two choices, the Sony AX53 for $999CDN (open box at Best Buy) or the Panasonic FZ2500 for $1500CDN.
It will be used for video only.
I love the price of the AX53 more but I had the FZ1000 back then and absolutely loved the video quality out of that thing.
FZ2500 has a bigger sensor so it should be able to handle low light better and give shallower DOF. I want all the manual controls that the AX53 lacks. I plan on running a Rode hotshoe mic off of it.
Does the FZ2500 suffer from the zoom barrel noise that the FZ1000 had?
How is the AF on the FZ2500 compared to G85? I wonder if it will be as fast as a camcorder.
