I'm very disappointed with the Sony lineup with no 60p but I'd rather have great image quality at 30p then crappy 60p.
Coming from an AX100 I'm ready for an upgrade and the NX80 fits the bill. I was sold on the Canon XF400 until this announcement. Lack of 60p is very disappointing but then i remembered my lack luster experience with the Canon XF300 & HF G30. They weren't horrible, but i wasn't blown away either. I"ve yet to find a YouTube video on the XF series that will change my opinion on this. You can throw the XC10 in with this assessment too.
The early footage from the XF400 has me a little worried that this trend will continue. It's not even on par with the AX100. So it's looking like the NX80 will win this battle for me and i'll just have to deal with the lack of 60p. I know I can get a GH5 but i prefer the ergonomics of a camcorder for run & gun plus it's still not a match for my NX1 (until the firmware upgrade at least).
Dual Pixel AF, 60p, 15X Zoom, Hardware ND Filter switch, Max Bit Rate 150 & upcoming codec upgrade, 5 Axis OIS
Full sensor readout, OLED Touchscreen, HLG, $700 less than XF 400, can use my existing batteries.
On paper the XF400 wins so I hope the footage stands up, but he full sensor readout of the Sony and Canon's history of line skipping soft unflattering footage has me leaning heavily toward the NX80. I'm not trying to spend a lot of time in my NLE editing I need great footage right out the camera.
What good is 4K/60p if the image is subpar? You'll just a very smooth crappy image. I hope the final image on the XF400 is great, but then i would have to decide if 60p is worth the extra $700. I'm not sure it is to me.
