Trying to get to grips with Sony's models. Looks like the HDR AX 2000 replaced the FX 1000 two years ago. Given the two year gap between those models' release (2008 & 2010) is it to be expected that a new model at this level will come this year? Or is the NEX VG20 to remain the newest prosumer offering for the foreseeable future? Thanks.

Doc -
Does the $1649 HXR-MC2000, introduced to favorable reviews about a year ago, count as a prosumer camera?

Bill, thanks for the reply. I guess so, but this is around the level of the NEX isn't it? What I'm really after is a successor to the AX 2000. My problem is that I'm not keen to spend that much on a 2 year old camera, and Sony's latest prosumer models seem to be more distant from pro level than the AX 2000. I just wondered if anyone had heard of something else on the horizon. I didn't notice anything in CES reports.

Ever considered a Panasonic AC130? If you must stick with Sony, you might as well wait until NAB. If they have a They have a successor to the AX2000 or NX5, you'll see it then.

Personally I wouldn't want to look at an AX2000. No 720p modes and 24p isn't native. In my opinion, the NX5 and the AC130 are infinite times better.
