Canon 5D2 Vs regular HD video cameras

Hi all

This is a follow on question to some posts earlier this year.... Given the firmware upgrades and experience over time, I'm hoping for some fresh insights.

I'm interested in the 5d2's HD video capability, and am wondering what advantages / disadvantages it offers over the high end Canon consumer / prosumer camcorders (Vixia / Legria) models?

Like others have stated, the convenience of an all in one package sounds great.

Just in terms of background / context, my intended used would be for travel / family situations. I also consider myself to be a serious amateur photographer, hence looking for an upgrade to my 20D.

the aim is looking for the best in HD image quality without having to spend mega bucks on a pro HD camera. The shots will largely be tripod based, and without too much fast panning / zooming etc.

Any thoughts / comments are welcome
