Sorry, I didn't look. I took note of the massive screen, day dreamed of watching football on it and then proceeded back to my shopping.

How would you rate the picture on the 2015 E-Series compared to the 2015 M-Series. I'm wondering if it makes sense to go with the 2015 E-Series 70" for what would be $1250 or so OR opt for the 65"...

Is there an option called Intelligent Frame Creation (IFC)? Some Panasonic sets have this as the setting. I checked the Owner's Manual, which isn't of much help.
