i've had tons of experience using the vx2000 and it's an awesome camera. I have absolutely no complaints with it...well except for one small one. There is ony 120x zoom, and i know 600x digital zoom isn't really overly practical, it'd still be nice to have when you're doing long-distance tripod work.
Both cameras are awesome, i guess it's pretty much just which one you can get for a better deal.
you may want to look and check out prices of the gl1, cause ive heard there isnt much difference between the newer model and the older one. if money is an issue that is

i think there is some significant differences between the gl1 and the gl2..i dont really know them though
but i would go with the vx-2000, in my opinion sony is better for skiing and whatnot,but you should get you feel is better for yourself..i suggest going to a store and trying them boht out...then again, i am retarded
when life give you lemons, squeeze them in someones eyes
the gl2 is fucking tight. zooms are overated and cheesey. If you got the cash go for the gl2, or if you don't mind the size go for a pro model.
I am about an 8, i will sit next to a girl that is a 6 and drink till she is a 10 and then bring her home
zooms are good but there is no need for digital zoom whatsoever so dont even look at that.
As far as I know the diffference is that the GL2 has a XLR audio input which doesnt mean anything for skiing. The main thing is that it has bigger CCDs which means the quality is a little better and it will be brighter if you are shooting at night.
