2nd cam...

After reading a bunch of old posts about second cameras I am thinking about upgrading my second camera (an HF10) to an XHA1 to match the existing XHA1 that I use as my main cam. I know lots of people use the XHA1's for wedding, but it sounds like since I bought mine (in early 2007) there are a lot more options out there in the same class. It sounds like perhaps the sony's have better low light and I like the idea of going tapeless with the panasonic HC150...but I already have one XHA1...should I just stick with buying another canon? I guess I don't want to sink more money into a second camera if I should really be using my HF10 for a bit until I wait for the next "big new thing"....like a tapeless, low light version of the XHA1...all for 2500...oh wait...maybe I've been dreaming too much :)

P.S. Something else to consider is that my wallet pain threshold is already being threatened with the idea of shelling out the 2500 for a good used XHA1...so any potential solutions need to be similar in dollars...I don't mind used gear though...
