As far as your concerns about burn in...newer model plasma's don't suffer AS MUCH or AT ALL in some cases the amount of burn in that they did when they first started getting big.
I think if you disable the "Smoothing" option when watching movies, it will get rid of the soap opera effect. What this option do is adding images between the existing images(or frames, as in 24 frames per second) to give a so-called "smooth" moving picture, but to me it looks like crap. Anyway, it's definitly the culprit of the s.o. effect.
