Don't know if I can justify a $1400 premium for the ZT. I already have a 65" Vt50 and love it and a 60" F8500. The Panny IMO looks better than the Sammy.
Just curious how you would compare the ZT60 and F8500. It sounds like the F8500 has the potential to be brighter, while the ZT60 has better black levels, though I'm sure there are other, more subtle differences.
I've read all the reviews, I just like hearing from people who have had a chance to live with a product for a while, too.
