XA10 or AC90?

Hey I am finally getting back into cinematography and there are 2 cameras in my price range that I am looking at the Canon xa10 and Panasonic ag-ac90. I know that the Panasonic has not been out long but has anyone used both or have an opinion on which i should get? My main uses for the camera are skateboarding and band performances at bars; The Panasonic ill have to use some adapter rings for any fisheye lens i want to use.

Can you get away with using the HF-G10, little brother to the XA10? It is about 1/2 the price of the AC90.

I have 2 - XA10's and a HF-G10 and you can't tell the difference footage wise. If you can live without the XLR handle and larger flash drive on the XA-10 the HF-G10 is a great buy.
