It would be very usefull to compare the XL2 and the DVX100A (with anamorphic adapter) with a res chart.

We could really see if this is about sharpness or resolution.

The XL2 seems to be virtually noise free, extremely clean.

The only major difference I saw was the XL2 had much more saturated greens (particularly the grass) Beyond that, is it worth another two grand (or whatever the price difference is), in my mind no.

Right, and I suppose interchangeable lenses, better resolution and true 16:9 are not major differences.

The saturation of colors means absolutely nothing by itself since this is menu tweakable (R/G/B independant on the XL2).

To some folks, those differences are immaterial... to others, they really matter. There is no "one right camera for everybody."

Heh. Actually that's a pretty good analogy there.
