We have used a Canon 5d mark II for 18 months and apart from editing H.264 Mov files in Premiere Pro cannot fault it. however, if I had a XHA-1 with the motor zoom and the HDV/mpeg-2 codec which is easy to edit I cannot see much of an advantage in going to the 5D mark II as the 1920 x 1080p is only marginally better than the 1440 x 1080f (Anamorphic) if at all. However, as the 5D mark II has a 35mm sensor the depth of field advantages of all the Canon EF IS Flourite L Series lens are considerable.If you want the movie look , you have got it.
I WOULD NOT GET RID of the marvellous XHA -1 .
Going backwards to an APS sensor in the 60D or 7 D and they are very good cameras ,and 1.6 x Lens extension is not progress ? Regardless of what the "experts say", Pro tape is not dead, I cannot see Canon getting rid of the Pro tape units although their New XF 105 and XF 305's are very impressive at $8,000 to $10.100 approx.
