Where is the LS500?!

Not the LS300mkII but an upper tier camera.

I'd be happy to settle for getting excited over a LS300 mk2 (or a firmware update) which is more or less the same as the LS300 mk1 but adds 4K 60fps 10bit internal

So close yet so far! If only this was a S35 camera.

I'm interested in these, I'd like for the thread to stay open so we can talk about them as more info emerges / reviews start to trickle in. 

JVC honestly might be the camera company that gives you the most bang for your buck, in terms of features and stuff. My biggest issue with them is their menu system feels ancient and bloated. My LS300 still has the ui of a 90s camcorder and just feels ancient. But I love the picture!
