for that price go for an xh a1 i love mine, only step up i would do is to a hpx but thats not happening anytime soon. You have 3 rings in the front instead of two (so you can controle iris, shutter, focus and zoom right in the front of the camera without using menues) correct me if im wrong but all the panasonics you have to flip through to change the shutter speed? The colors dont pop like a panasonic which is good and bad. gives the nice soft feel to the edits which i really like. For sample footy Look at CS_Films profile, we both use that camera and would both recomend it.
Oh and we share one wideangle (not fish eye) and there have only been a hand full of times that we really wished we had 2 or a fish eye. Get a good tripod and your edits will be 200x better then grabbing the fish eye and following people around
hahah this reaction made me go check out the cam... if your upgrading from that i dont think a 2500 dollar cam is necessary, you could get a dope for under 2gs, and check out used or refurbished ones
