    Well I don't know these 2 camcorders, but it really is down to what you are after.
    My personal opinion is that the quality of the footage is more important than a slightly smaller cam. All camcorders these days tend to be fairly small & light, so a better lens IMO is the deciding factor.

    A better lens will be no good if the size of the camcorder means that you don't bother to take it with you!

    Would you really notice the difference in lens quality?

    The salesman in Comet said the same thing about the lens quality to me. But after the good lady and I tried a few cameras we settled on the Panasonic DS60.
    It was far more comfortable to hold, especially for her small hands, and I bought it for £330 ish from Empire.
    So far I have been very impressed with the camcorder - image quality is really good and the weight of the camera makes it easy to use over extended periods even with out a tripod.
