Just to let you know, I had my heart set on the NX5U, but finances (even that "small" $500.00 bump) won't allow it. I bought the AX2000 about two weeks ago. Let me tell you, I haven't missed (nor have I found a use for) the GPS, 720p recording capability, or the PCM audio! Just in my very short time, I've had a GREAT time with the cam! When I got it, I hooked up my 7" JAG35 HDMI monitor, Varizoom controller (via LANC), and everything worked like a charm! I've upgraded from a Sony PD-170, so all of the accessories for that cam (except the WA lens) work/fit perfectly.

Enjoy it when it arrives and post here your views and thought of how you like/dislike your choice! Hopefully, you'll be as pleased as I am!

Thanks for the reply, I will give my impressions as soon as it arrives...I purchased a higher performance battery as well as a 32Gig Class 6 SDHC card to go with my other 32Gig card that I use in the HG21, I also purchased a
Spiderbrace 2 http://www.spiderbrace.com/ for better handling down the road, I already own a Glidecam Pro 2000 which will work great with the AX2000 .....I have a Rode Stereo Mic(Not the Mono mic) so I ordered the Rode adapter that will allow me to hook it into the XLR connection on the cam if I so choose....

My Cam arrived VIA Fed Ex in perfect condition, All I can say is Wow!!!! She makes my HG21 and HG10 look like toys in comparison..My coworkers were drooling.....Been going over the manual all evening..I will be testing it out at the Embasy Suites Ball room this weekend recording my co-workers Big band Group, I will offer some demo footage which could pan out into a paying Gig for later performances.....should be fun.....Thus far the AX2000 is simply a dream to hold and operate....
