Timing is everything. I had a cart built from Adorama with an XA10 and host of accessories and was planning to make the purchase yesterday while I was at work. I didn't go through my email until I got home and noticed the announcement for these new cameras. I would have been SOOOO peeved if I had already bought it, so that's definitely a plus, but now I need to make alternate plans for the 2 video shoots I have before June. I'm going to try the CPS Loaner program for the first time and see how that works out. If not, I'll just go back to DSLR video, which I find quite painful to pull off.
The upgrades look quite nice and well worth the wait. Twice the zoom, bigger chip so better low light, supposedly improved ergonomics, and 60p.
