Incredibly well built, amazing picture quality (still dialing the settings), great ergonomics, IR is amazing. The best bang for the buck right now on the market. I am VERY glad I sold my JVC GY-HM100 and bought this one. In comparison HM100, HMC-40 from Panasonic look like amateur versions and can't compare to this one. The amount of adjustments for picture profile is the same as on XF300. Auto ND is kind of hard to get used to, but that is the only draw back I noticed so far. LCD is good enough to get critical focus and WFM is also great of achieving correct exposure. Getting footage into FCP is no problem. Over all a big A for over all grade.
