I have been looking every day to see if anyone has done direct comparisons of Panasonic's new 7 series to earlier models. I have read the "initial impressions" posts but have not seen anything regarding the improved processing, increased color depth, 2048 grayscale, ect. Am I overlooking something? Plasma TV Buying Guide has had a "coming soon" note on their site for a couple of weeks...still no joy! To all the Old Hands and Acknowledged Experts, please point me to what's available. Thanks to all of you for the AVS Forum, which for me has become addictive.
