OK, so I know this has been debated before, but wondered if things have moved on.... I'm the very happy owner of a 3rd gen Pana (ok, I know it's not the latest anymore but I've had the pleasure of it for nearly 18 months to compensate) and I'm sticking with that. However, a friend of mine is now ready to make the plasma leap. My natural reaction is to point him down the Pana 5 route (flicker not being too bad when he actually sees one I hope), but should he consider an MXE instead. It seems it comes down to Pana has better blacks, MXE has more vibrant colours - does that about cover it? Go on you Pio owners... convert me if you can....
