The reason the MPEG 2 option in FCP didn't work is because it's a generic version of MPEG 2 that's only for the consumer cameras that use it. XDCAM EX cameras use the propriety EX codec which is another type wrapper for MPEG 2.

MPEG 2 is a long GOP lossy codec but if you're just doing straight cuts and minimal colour correction then editing with an XDCAM EX timeline will be fine. It's when you start doing heavy CC you should be using an "I" frame codec such as Pro Res.
