Disadvantages of both is that they are both tape based.
JVC GY-HD111E:
Pros:
2 XLR microphone inputs
Interchangeable lenses

Cons:
DV/HDV
Recording Formats:
720/24p, 720/25p, 720/30p, 576/50p, 480/60p, 480/24p, 480/60i
Though the ability to shoot in progressive instead of interlaced would be an advantage.

You might want to do a little more research on both to see how they compare. Depending on how much they are selling for there may be better options.

Between the two it would appear the Sony records in a higher resolution than the JVC. I have two older Sony HDR-HC1 camcorders (pro-sumer at best) and have always been pleased with the quality of the video. I can't comment on the JVC from personal experience as I have never used one.

The Sony gets excellent reviews at B & H.
