Yup, B&H is listing the XH-A1 for $4000, Z1 for $4500. Both cameras have XLR inputs, unlike the FX1, which can be had for under $3000 these days.

Peter, I totally agree about HDV. I'm actually not sure if that format will last. It's really a transitional format to cram HD onto a cheap and accessible media (miniDV tape). I had a chance to shoot with the HVX this summer and it definitely blows HDV away. We are already seeing cameras with newer, and probably better compression codecs (such as Panasonic's AVC-Intra). I don't know where this will go in the next 2 years - I just hope our cameras don't become obsolete!
