I'm not sure how I missed this, but I really like this PTZ. On paper, it seems like it should be a really good camera. What are your thoughts on this, guys?

People that follow me know that I have shown that 2MP is more than enough and that focal length is more important than MP at a set distance, so I think this would be an absolute monster contender at night.

I think for a PTZ that can see further away, 2MP on a sensor designed for 8MP would be incredible at night.

The question is how much and when are you getting one LOL.
