My brother picked up a Canon HV20 last Christmas for a steal from B&H. Think he got it for like $500. I'd probably use that over my CanonGL2 in outside situations where light is not a big factor or didn't need the options the GL2 affords. I think they are up to the HV40 now... somewhere around $700.
