Don't get me wrong the new Sony might be even better than the 2012 Panasonic cameras with 5 axis IS. Would really have to test them side by side. I am still amazed by my TM90 with its 4 axis hybrid IS. I took some video while in a car and people always ask me how I made it look so smooth. I had one shot where my wife hit a bump in the road and I hit the roof of the car with my camcorder hand. You can hear me say damn that isn't going to look good on the video and I can't really tell on the video. Its still very smooth.
