XL2 vs. Panasonic DVX100B

I recently came across the XL2 and by the looks of it it stopped me from buying the 100B, i was wondering the pros and cons of the XL2 and how it compares to the 100B. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

-Chris

XL2 Pros:
Native 16:9
Lens options
Less noisy image than DVX
More detailed image (higher-res CCD's)

XL2 cons:
Weight / size (for some uses that's a problem, others not)

Pros:
Interchangeable lense
Custom Presets
24p and 30p recording
Native 16:9 aspect ratio recording
20x Zoom lens (stock)
Extremely customizable image control (knee, blacks, ‘cine’ look, RGB, etc)
XLR audio inputs with the option to add another XLR adaptor for 4 XLR inputs.
Gain control on audio
Audio control in general is great.

Con:
Crappy EVF Viewender. What you see is what you wont get. Clippage occurs.
No fold out LCD screen.
Front weight can be an issue for some, especially handheld operators.
Can only store 3 custom presets on camera.
