Default setting on the hd100 do yield a bland image. However colors can easily be punched up via the extensive manual setttings. Paolo Ciccone has also come up with a series of custom setting that produce a "poppier" picture.

What are the reasons which make one go for the HD100 and not the XH A1?

I'm starting to wonder that myself. In my case, the xh a1 wasn't out yet. I'm not sure which has better color. The Hd100 does have interchangeable lenses and a more pro look/ergonomics. I'll never be able to afford those expensive lenses though.
