I would go with the Panasonic because of the ability to control more aspects of the film. Some of its shortcomings can be battled with great editing. I think the low light produces some noise levels but it can be dealt with using a good denoiser (i.e. Red Giant Denoiser or Neat Video). I think the most important thing that it has to offer is the control of bright areas which prove hard to balance in the editing room (if the scene has blown out areas). I say, go for the Panasonic.
