It's easier to tell you what the two camcorders have in common. Only three features from the GL1 are found on the GL2, and they are: 20x zoom lens, optical image stabilisation, and frame movie mode. Everything else is different.

GL-1 vs GL-2

Differences? Numerous.

Differences I like and/or use? Audio meters on GL-2, a better picture with the GL-2, external manual audio control, MUCH faster tape load/reload on the GL-2, the list goes on, but I'm drawing a blank right now.

I DON'T like the re-placement of the headset jack on the GL-2. It's so close to the mic jack, that if you don't pay close attention you could easily plug the headset into the mic jack. (and vice versa)

I would suggest getting a DVC30 over the Gl2, but I would honestly suggest the new HDV from Canon in a few months, it will be signficantly better than the Gl2 and cheaper. Check it out in the HV10 forum. The gl2 is showing it's age now, still alright in SD, but the DVx100 and Dvc30 will be a better value if you want to stick in the SD realm.
