So its looking good for the Vixia HF G10 based on bosses needs and budget (I realize its more a consumer level, but I think it will serve our needs).

Couple of last questions on this if you will indulge me:
I have pulled down the manual and read it through, as well as numerous web searches and product review on this, and I'm still struggling on these items:

For future expandablity we may need to use Wireless Lavalier Microphones. I see the G10 has a mic input and it appears toi be compatable with the Wireless Lavalier Microphones, but I'm having trouble proving it.

Additionally can you "live review" as in have the G10 connected to an external monitor that the client can watch without crashing into the tripod while the scene is being shot? I see that there is HDMI out and analog SD output (RCA), but I cannot find if this can be used during the recording or only during playback.

A definite yes regarding the microphone question. As far as real-time external monitor question goes, I think this is a question for Canon sales support. I'd give them a call and discuss it with them.

Yes, live preview can be obtained through the hdmi connection. You won't be able to use your laptop, you'll need a monitor or tv that accepts 1080i @ 59.94 through an hdmi connection.
