Do you guys know of any good wide angle lenses that work with the HD2000? I got mine in on wednesday from digitalrev, everything looks great but do the lenses from the HD1000 and HD1010 work with this one?

Since the HD2000 takes 40.5mm accessories, just like the HD1000 and HD1010, the lens for the earlier models should fit the HD2000.

and I'm extremely happy with it so far.
Just get one you won't regret it, think of the money you'll save on DV tapes, head cleaners, time wasted searching and converting from DV tapes.
i think the price is bit pricey, right? The VPC-HD2000ex should be 100% similar to the HD2000, right?

I found the Sanyo VCP-L07WU which should fit HD2000, HD1010 and HD1000. This lens from Sanyo are expensive but their wide wide angle converter will work well and fit. Is FH1 and TH1 using the same converter?

The HD2000 (plus HD1000, HD1010) takes 40.5mm accessories while the FH1 and TH1 takes 37mm so the add-ons are different.

If you go to the amazon site and see the user reviews for this camera, you will see that they actually bought it already.. which means is available.

What I don't get, is that they complain that this is the european version and if connected to their NTSC TVs, it won't play at all.

I thought the NTSC/PAL issue was a thing of the past with the new HD standards. I wish to get an HD2000 too, but I am a little concerned about this.

They are buying them in places like Hong Kong. Or maybe Europe. They are available in places besides the US, and although I wouldn't mind buying from some of these vendors (prices seem pretty good) there might be issues with warranties, although I think Sanyo would honor them.
