Just looking for a utility camera for general run-and-gun to replace my ageing H-series Varicam and SDX900. I already have a Sony F3 for commercials and music videos which has been fantastic, but I feel I need a good 1080 utility camera for general non-artsy work, if you will.

In Australia, the Sony 500 is around $5K dearer than the Panasonic, but I have a long history with Panasonic 2/3" cameras and like the Panasonic look.

But I do have several 64gb SxS cards, so that is attractive in the other direction, plus the 720 50P slo-mo is useful in the Sony. While the 3100 is very good value and a great reliable camera.
