Used to work a lot with the XL2 a couple of years ago and it indeed is a great camera.

But I don't think you'll get happy with it, since it's only SD. I made the step to HD about one year ago and definitly don't want to go back!

I still work on a lot of SD projects, but I always record in HD - you got so many more possibilities when you have HD (or HDV) source material (reframing just to mention one).

If you are that much into "film-look", you might want to take a closer look at one of the numerous VDSLRs, like the Canon 5DMkII that Bob suggested.

I have a 550D myself and use it alongside with my Sony V1 - it's the perfect couple. The V1 - a easy to use, very good HDV camcorder and the 550D (T2i) with it's interchangeable leneses for the more "filmic" stuff.

DSLRs are not to easy to handle in video mode, but the results are stunning!
