I have to second using BH Photo – great place to get your stuff.
Is there something in particular about the GL2 that is swaying your purchase?
I don’t have any real issue against the GL2 – I would recommend looking at somethign a little newer, since the GL2 hasn’t been updated in a long while. I was debating between that and the Panasonic AG-DVC30 and went with that. It was a lot cheaper anyway Panasonic has a rebate going on right now (so does Canon) that makes it relatively inexpensive.
Not to stir up a debate, but macsrule10 alluded to a problem with the tape deck. There are a number of people voicing similar complaints with the Canon cameras where the tape deck will fail – I had a Canon camera fail with the same problem)
Having said all that, NAB is later this month, and that is when a lot of companies announce new products. When I see a lot of rebates going on, it makes me suspect that some new models are in the works. I am waiting until later this month to make up my mind on a new camera.
Hope this helps!
