Panasonic TC-85AX850u -- Any info on this set?

In my quest to find the perfect set above 75 inches (and $15k or below), I ran across this Panasonic set which was released a few months ago. I can't find any threads dedicated to this TV, and there's very little chatter about it in other threads. Below was what I was able to piece together. Anyone else have information? Has anyone seen this live, and, if so, how does it compare to the Sony 85x950b and the Samsung 85HU8550?

-- Official Website: http://shop.panasonic.com/tvs/4k-tvs...=1&cgid=4k-tvs

-- 98% of DCI P3 color gamut (source: official website)

-- FALD with ~32 zones (source: Magnolia employee said Panasonic rep said more than the 8 zones of the 8550 but way less than the 140+ zones of the Sony -- rumors around AVS in the few posts I could find said 32 zones)

-- Conflicting panel reports. AVS says VA, but this "review" says IPS (source: http://www.bigpicturebigsound.com/Pa...-LED-TVs.shtml )

-- HDMI 2.0 / Displayport (unsure on HDCP 2.2)

-- No reviews that I could find, but it appears to be the same TV as the UK model 85X942 and the international version 85X940 (but please let me know if incorrect)

Anyone have any info on the upscaling? HDCP 2.2? How the picture compares to the Samsung or the Sony? Also, does the IPS panel result in a terrible contrast ratio like the 79x900b? I really didn't like that set. The bottom line is I was almost ready to give up on the 85 inchers and "settle" for the 75x940c when it comes out in June, but this set may change my mind.

Actually, the specs on the Panasonic website say it's Active 3D, so does that mean it's a VA and not an IPS panel?
