Which is why I suggested, repeatedly, that people should follow up with enthusiast sites, not just pro-reviews, and to read multiple pro-reviews. The Panasonic could certainly be considered better...

There is a difference between a pro and a shill.

It's like someone given a car and then claiming how much they love it. That doesn't make them qualified, or a pro, it makes them paid off.

8'11" to 10'9" by the numbers, which means 9' to 10.5' is good. I would shoot for about 9'6" to 10' to be sure you are right in the middle of that range.
