I can’t help you on which camera to move up to but I will say switch to MiniDV.
I came from [and still have and use from time to time] a Digital 8 Sony but I use a FX1 for "big" projects.
As I understand it, Sony is no longer [or they will stop very shortly] making new Digital 8 cameras so it may be time to move to a new format for that reason alone.
MiniDV for standard and Hi Def should be around for a few [at least the next 5 years or more] but it will be replaced as HD becomes more "standard" and HDV [the MiniDV HD] is replaced by a better format.
I don’t know if that helps you but research it as this is just my two cents.
