This website has a good equipment exchange forum. I've bought and sold gear there.

Don't get me wrong - I'd have preferred a 350 to my 320, but like for like (K models with kit lens) the 320 was about half the price and had some pluses - inbuilt SD capability being one. The big minus is, of course, 1/2" chips against 2/3". Well, you get what you pay for.....

Regarding the lens, then I wonder if you're comparing it with full 2/3" broadcast lenses? In which case, you're right - it's not up to the standard...... but it's vastly cheaper, and I find it exceptional value for money. And whilst it may not be up to their standard, it's broadly of a standard with what you'd find on a PMW200 or 300 - which is what this thread is most focussed on.

Re: PMW-200 or PMW-320

Update, for those interested -- I just ordered a PMW-300!
I found a b-stock model and saved a few hundred dollars. Still has the Sony warranty.

After all my research and the opinions from all of you on this forum, the 300 was easily the best choice in my budget range. The XAVC upgrade, now scheduled for June and Long GOP in October, sealed the deal. I want this camera to be viable for years down the road.

Now, let's hope it pays for itself.

Re: PMW-200 or PMW-320

How did you manage to get a "b-stock model" on a very current camera?
