I have used a GL2 for several years, and love it. It works perfectly for SD video targeted for DVDs and the web. I love the long lens (I shoot from high up in sports stadiums) and quality.
Irecently bought the HF10 and ran into problems because I jumped the gun! I love the camera and its video, but I wasn’t prepared for the computer/software upgrades needed to edit the avchd footage. And then once you have the edited footage, you run into more upgrades needed to burn to disk. My suggestion: but the GL2 or other SD model. By the time you are ready to go hi-def, it will be cheaper and easier.
