I mean compared to a 2/3" camera, the HPX300 will be slower and to get back to the same sensitivity to even the EX1 or EX3, much less a good 2/3" HD camera, you'd have to boost gain.

I've only spent about an hour with an HPX300, but find it to be about the best 1/3" camera I've seen, especially factoring in AVC-Intra, but there's only so much 1/3" imagers can do in the trade off between sensitivity and noise.

I wish Panasonic would offer -3db in their lower end cameras to reduce noise if wanted--I most often shoot with my HDX900 and HPX2700 in -3db. Of course, these cameras are very sensitive, so the -3db setting isn't a big deal.
