about to buy mine:) Anyone in Portland OR area?

I'm about to purchase my XL2 at the 4300.00 price. I think regardless of some of the negative feedback, still sounds like the camera for me. Just a couple of concerns.

1 - noticed some postings about Final Cut HD and XL2 compatibility problems? (I use Final Cut Pro 4 and about to upgrade to HD version) Or if i keep at the Final Cut Pro 4 version, are there still any compatiblity problems?

2 - is it truly worth getting the extended service contract? (Locally in Seattle,where I can pick one up for 4300.00, they don't have a place that offers the extended contract)
(Might purchase instead via mail order from B&H instead if I need the contract).

And a question, anybody out there in Portland OR or outlining cities near Portland area know of a place to purchase at 4300.00 price plus offer the option of the extended Maint. contract? (That is other than Magnolia HiFI who refuses to go below the original $5,000.00 tag price.)

Try Zotz Digital (click on link) I believe they're in Oregon. Ask for Brian or Tom, they're great, and also sponsers of this community too!

THANKS

Thanks Chris for your response about the dealer in OR. I was hoping something closer to Portland though. 4 hour drive as opposed to 7hours from Seattle area.

thanks again guys for the info you shared. I decided to go with ZOTS. Brian over htere is great. Should have it in my hands within two days. With free shipping also, I couldn;t go wrong. Saved me a trip anyway :)

Can't wait to get my first hands on experiance of the camera. I know it's not the dream perfect camera, but I'm sure I will not be dissapointed.
