Sony and JVC seem to have come to the decision to look after customers, who spend (whichever way you look at it) extraordinary amounts of money on these products, with firmware updates and new features instead of the usual cynical drive to push new sales when all that is on offer are software updates with no new hardware.
I hope they continue this modus operandi as I think it will engender more loyalty and confidence in the whole market.
When they truly have something new to release, then and only then, should they bring out new models.
On top of that JVCs new models have only been freely available for about 9 months and the Sony's were only released last year. Sony usually have a 2 year cycle anyway but I am not sure about JVC or others.
You won't go far wrong with anything available today image wise. Your only choices for native 4K (without selling your granny for parts) are JVC and Sony at the present time. :)
