A good reason(practical reason) to shoot 720PN is you get a lot more recording time on a P2 card vs. 1080P. Data transfer is faster as well.

Another thing that actually has given 720 a bit of a quality boost in the last few years is that DVCPRO HD only offers 960 horizontal lines of resolution vs. 1280 with AVC-Intra 100 or Pro Res 422.

There just isn't a compelling reason to shoot 1080P with an HDX900 or HPX2700. Of course, there are many reasons to shoot 1080P with a native 1080 full raster chip set camera and codec that actually can record 1920.
