    "720p on the G3 is roughly equivalent in resolution to 1080p on the Canon 5D Mark II.

    The G3 looks to be a nice option for those who can’t afford or find a GH2. It also has 1080p, although it stores the 30/25p output of the sensor in an interlaced AVCHD format. No native 24p mode like the GH2. Is that a massive issue when the 720p mode is so good?"

    What the heck does that mean? Does it do 1080p HD on the G3?
