Great XL2 kit for $21k AU or DSR570 kit for $40k Au - which one????

Hi all, those of you who have seen my threads will know I am considering the XL2 in a full kit form, which is a hum-dinger of a kit. It is $21,000 here in Australia.

I don't know whether to spend the extra $19k and get a full DSR 570 kit.

Decisions, decisions.

Money will be tight at the start and so the XL2 kit is more comfortable to pay off, but when the money comes in, I do not want to be stuck with a kit I am less satisfied with and could now afford a DSR570 kit.


Hmmmm...

Is the difference worth 19k?

OK, I'll bite: what does "full kit" mean?

I'd ask what do you hope to shoot with these rigs.

If it's for corporate, or wedding stuff where you don't work for anyone else but yourself, the the XL2 will be more than adequate.

If you are going to make your living as a shooter for someone else or networks, the 570 is a better choice as it will get you more work.

Hope that helps
