thanks for clarifying that, just wanted to make sure.
I have never used a f2.5 lens, but I do have a f2.8 and it's good in low light, so this is great news that the XA10 is better.
I am searching but haven't found any good videos that sow the low light comparison of a good f2.8 lens vs the XA10. Hopefully soon that will appear on youtube or another video site.

Jack it may take you a week but there is a lot about the canon XA-10 and the other new canons on here http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1322785
