Summary: Some day this may be a great camera. I have had the VG10 for a year and had great hopes for the VG20. However, what is shipping in November 2011 feels like a beta version. Many features that were on the VG10 are missing, and the control structure is even more difficult to use than the one on the VG10. The video stream is great, as it is with the VG10, and if Sony can ever fix this thing up, I'll buy it again. As it is, I returned it.
