Sony Handycam NEX-VG10 (with 18-200mm Lens)

The ; brings interchangeable-lens flexibility to camcorders at a prosumer price.

Though it's priced like a high-end camcorder, with the exception of the lenses the VG10's feature set and video quality don't match that of much cheaper models.

A solid first effort in a nascent category, the Sony Handycam NEX-VG10 nevertheless needs some conceptual refinement.
