I never said "significantly", I said a little bit cheaper. The 60" ST60 has a list price at $1899 which is less than the list price of the 60" ST50 $2099.
Moving on...The 60" GT50 has a list price of $2599 and 55" VT50 is $2499, I will "speculate" that the 60" VT60 will be "approximately" $2999 maybe even "a bit" lower which will be about where the current GT series is. VERY interesting but also keep in mind that Panasonic has clamped down hard on special pricing but still..... GT was superfluous and is superseded by a clearly superior set.
Panasonic will not want to outright say it but the GT was not in a good market position considering product differentiation and features compared to the ST particularly "IF" pricing on the VT drops even a little bit to be closer to the GT levels.
If your on the fence now it'll be a tough one.
