Hi guys

I'm new to the forum so apologies if this is in the wrong section.

I currently create promotional videos using my company's canon XL2, and I'm now wanting to buy my own camera for further projects.

Ideally I'd like to upgrade to HD but the XL H1 is out of my price range, but I can pickup second hand versions of both the XL2 and the Z1 for around 2000.

Basically as I've only ever used the XL2 I'm after a little advise which to go for, should I go to the sony HD or does the XL2 still offer a better package overall? As the XL2 still goes for a lot more money when buying new.

Or could anyone recommend a different semi pro camcorder in the price range of 2000 second hand.
