The GL2 is a nice camera, but is there a reason why you are limiting yourself to Canon? For your price range, you can do a lot better – the Sony VX2100 will give you a much better picture and with lower lights and not much more.
If you want HD, then take a look at the Sony FX1 – It might be a little more than your price range, but the nearest Canon HD equivalent is around 10,000.
I was a Canon devotee and was dead set to get the GL2 — The Panasonic ag-dvc30 is a better deal with more features than the GL2.
