I've had a quick look through the forums trying to decide on which camcorder to buy from not knowing much about any of them. From what I'd seen from another recent thread from someone in the same position as me, the Sony DCR-HC90E came out pretty well but a bit out of my price range at £500+. Well today I went into the local Comet store to have a look and try some for size and they had the HC90E (£700!) and it's superceded model the HC85E at special offer of £370. Now the question is, I know I can get the HC90E for £520 online, but is the HC85E a better buy at £150 less as it is discontinued?
