Canon XF305

 

Like the cheaper XF300, the XF305 has 50Mbps full HD recording on to CompactFlash cards and an 18x wide-angle zoom lens. This up-spec model also features jacks for HD-SDI output, genlock and SMPTE time code.

Although prices, availability and shipping dates have yet to be announced for Australia, both models are slated to ship to North America in June, where the XF300 will retail for US$7000 (AU$7500) and the XF305 for US$8000 (AU$8580). That's pretty steep...
