I'll bet by the time P2 drops to a price many of us in the special events business can afford it, this camera will be a well outdated model and Panasonic could have moved to a pure P2 product line.

What stops you using the camera as a player? It works fine for me now. My cameras don't get used enough to worry about one record and one play per tape as I currently work.

I would be more interested in just a DV tape transport as a fall back, and common standard capture amoungts the mass's. Use P2 for non DV if you like. What I wouldn't want however is DVCPRO (PAL) at all. As it is 4:1:1 most of my needs would requrie conversion to DV (4:2:0) or MPG2 (4:2:0) and that's not a pretty picture.
