If you think about it though the JVC and the Z1 are both a few notches below the HVX200 in terms of capability. They're both shooting HDV which is 4x as compressed as DVCPROHD and with less color depth. If you think that level of MPEG-2 type compression is going to endure 30 years on a mini DV tape with no dropouts you could be in for an unpleasant surprise or two.

And neither shoots 24p at 1080 like the HVX. The Z1 only does 1080i with no 24p at all and the JVC maxes out its 24p at 720p again in the compressed space of HDV. The trade-off of course is you get the tape you're accostumed to shooting with. You'll have to figure out what's more important. And P2's prices can only go down while capacities go up. I think it's an exciting choice to make.
