The optical quality of the Canon GL2 lens, for standard definition and wide screen acquisition is awesome. Does it beat out that of the Vixia models – havent compared to know, but I suspect the GL2 carries superior glass as I look at the lens components in illustrations and web images of both.
I specifically went with Canon XL and GL models because of the quality of Canon glass. I am sure most Canon camcorders at any price range have some advantage over other comparable manufacturer models. I found this to be true when I switched years ago from Panasonic to Canon.
