A1 lens vs XL-H1 lens

Im considering buying the A1 insted of the H1 because I dont need the SDI output and probably I wont change the lens. Acctually Im working with a DVCAM DSR-390 with the canon YH19x lens but if I change to HDV I dont want to loose camara resolution and lens quality. A1 and H1 have the same ccds, is the A1 lens going to be as good as H1s?, will A1s resolution be as the H1s?

That is the general expectation, but since the A1 hasn't been released yet, we don't know. Once they're on the street, reviews will appear quickly.

The XH-A1/G1 uses fluorite, Canon very best L-Series glass. Whether that translates into equality with the XL-H1 or not, it's going to be very good. In fact Kaku's clips already look nicely resolved.

You can count on over exhuberance to rule the day. But I suspect that as before, there will be little to no actual discernable difference between this and even the little Canon HV10 under bright sunny conditions. That's how close these HDV cams are to each other. The differences between cams and brands will be more apparent in low light and feature sets.
