Recently bought an XL2 and thought I would give my first impressions.
Its not a cheap piece of equipment.
Seems to be very well made.
Great piece of glass up front.
I love the 20X zoom
The onboard sound is OK but for many gigs, remote mics via the XLR is going to be needed
The learning curve to get it up and flying is not bad but to be very skilled with this unit will take time.
So far the only downside I can find is that it is a tad heavy on the front when doing shoulder mount work.
The picture quality is very nice indeed.
Just some observations so far
