Default FZ150 the current ~$500 SZ/DSLR King?

Hi all,

Looking to step up from my trusty Panny FH20 P&S to a super zoom or entry level DSLR. Video is equally important as stills to me, and I'd really like to experiment with slow motion vids.
Seems like the FZ150's 720p @ 60fps is currently tops. I tried out a Nikon P510 at Best Buy and was very disappointed with the AF's ability to hold focus over the zoom range. The 60fps video did look great though, as long as no zoom was introduced.
Youtube clips seem to show that the FZ150 does a much better job.

Any other suggestions or advice for a ~$500 camera that can shoot HD vid at 60fps+? Looks like it will be a few years until 120fps+ in HD makes it down to the $500 or less price point.

IMHO it would be wiser going the FZ150 way.
