60i vs 50i and 25P vs. 30/24p

Hi guys!


After reading some good reviews of the Canon HF100, I have decided to get one here in springs while I still can.

One thing however had come to mind - The euro version have 50i and 25P while the American version have 60i, 30p and 24p.

The big question is - for subjects in motion e.g sports, and e.g for panning - will there be a big difference between 50i and 60i?

And for 25p vs 30p.?

I understand the lower framerate will have the benefit under worse lighting conditions, but good motion is important for me.
