I bet alot of people are wondering how the Sony improves on the 5010/5020:
Native motion resolution is better then the Epson
Well, I find that with some movies I can't use RC (e.g. 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy') b/c of the inherent noise/grain that gets ridiculously amplified. Even with RC at 'min'. For that reason, I prefer optical sharpness. Which I can actually get my stopping down the lens (Iris Open Reg; 725, enable 'Auto Limited'). Of course, that doesn't work for 3D, which opens up the lens all the way. Maybe that's why I feel I need excessive RC with 3D (along with some report that 3D on the HW50 is not actually 1080p... which is weird/concerning).
And, wow, motion resolution must be pretty poor on the JVC if you love the Sony... I'm still mildly bothered by motion blur on the HW50. I can see it get better with Dark Frame Insertion, but I feel the latter to be unusable for 24p content due to flicker. But, yes, the motion blur is much better than on an Epson 8350 I briefly owned.
Out of curiosity, are you just subjectively judging 'motion resolution'? I don't know of a good way of measuring it quantitatively with my current equipment.
