Best Full HD Camcorder for around €2k

Hey - I'm looking at buying a full HD camcorder - budget is around €2000 (GBP£1700).

I have a Canon 7D that I do most of my shooting on, but because of focus pulling, difficulty with fast movement, 12min video limit in full HD, overheating, etc, I wanted to buy something less fussy for use mainly outdoors & for fast action if needed.

After doing some research, I see my options as the following:
  • SONY HXR-MC50E
  • Canon XA10 (too expensive?)
  • Panasonic HDC-MDH1
  • Sony HXR-MC2000E
  • Sony HVR-HD1000U (too old?, 1080i only)


The options & reviews out there are a bit daunting, TBH. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Sean.

What form factor are you looking for? A traditional shoulder mount type camera, or a handheld camera?

For me, XLR inputs are very important. SONY HXR-MC50 has a minijack input.

Look for a used Panasonic HVX200.
