101 or 111?

Hi guys, long time lurker, first time poster :-)

I'm about to make the leap into buying the JVC camera, and in looking around for the best deal came across a supplier who still has a few 101s available. I can get one of these for about $1500 less than what the 111 is going for.

Basically, I'd like an opinion on whether people think this is a good deal, or if the improvements made to the 111 justify the extra expense. Oh, and I checked, the 101s have had the upgrade.

Cheers
Pat

I have the 101, I think its great. Save your money and go for the 101 (unless you specifically need the extra features, or your dealer is throwing in some good free stuff with the 111). Put the money you save towards getting a good battery kit, such as the IDX or Anton Bauer - unless you can live with under 40mins battery time on the JVC stock battery...

Actually, that was my next question. Has anybody tried these batteries yet? If so, what sort of running time did you get from them?
