What about the fan noise? Why is there a fan in the first place? I hear from other models that it's quite anoying. Can you enlight me about that problem?
Thank you.

I have been using the tm900k since it first came problems. since the new model does not appear to have a built in hard drive (possibly their solution) I would doubt their are any fan noise issues. The audio recording capabilities of my model have been nothing short of amazing!

I'm really rather surprised by the comments on image quality. I have plenty of footage from this camera, but I'm not impressed. It is sharp, and the encoder does a great job even at low bitrates. The image stabilizer is very impressive, too. But image quality itself? Highlights quickly burn out, and blue sky is frequently cyan, rather than blue (darker/underexposed parts are blue). Videos of the same scenes from my Pentax DSLR look way better, with much better color rendition, and even my cheap Canon superzoom is able to deliver much better, more realistic colors (it too will turn bright skies to cyan, but it's able to go much further than the Panasonic here). Also I noticed plenty of aliasing and moire.
