Summary: I love the camera, it is a great value for the money, I wish I could have paid full price for a new one, but this one is still up to date and awesome! as a bonus I got a spare battery, battery charger,telephoto lens, a wide angle lens and a boom microphone which more than doubled the value! I am happy!
Large lens, great low light, manual focus ring/dial. 5 stars

Summary: before this camera I used 3CCD Panasonic PV-GS300 cameras. This camera is much better. The lens is huge by comparison and the picture is in HD. The low light level is much better too. There may be some issues with this camera, but I haven't found them yet. Well, except for the microphones on the camera. They could be better; this doesnt matter much to me though because I am using the external output into a condenser mic of my own.
