JVC GY-HD100U vs Sony Z1

Hey guys, I'm in the process of buying a second camera. I already own a Sony HD1000 and was planning on buying the same model. That was until I began coming across used Sony Z1s around that same price range and a used JVC GY-HD100U. The reason these caught my attention is the manual controls that I would like to have again.

Of all the possible issues between these cameras the one that concerns me the most is the low light performance...especially for wedding videography. Which one performs the best in your opinion/experience.

Sony cams are 1080i. JVC cams are 720p. They won't match.

Even a used Z1 should be about double the price of a new HD1000U. They won't match either.
