Summary: On paper this looks like an excellent camera. External mic, avi or mp4 files(whatever works better with your software), optical image stabilization and more. So I got on one clearance (still sealed new in the box) and it found out why they were discontinued so fast. It has major problems focusing, even outside with bright lighting. When you zoom in or out is can loose focus for several seconds and the focus motor just keeps running in and out over and over.
