I, very much like you, am saving up to buy an HD camera and also like you am looking at Sony. The EX-1 definitely impressed me at first, and still does in many respects, but the rolling shutter issues and 4:2:0 color space are near-deal breakers for me. I plan to use my new camera (whenever I get it) for compositing, fast motion "run and gun" footage, studio recording and a plethora of other things. To be honest, if I had the money to buy today I cannot truthfully say whether I'd go for an HVX200 or an EX-1. Both have their ups and downs and, like Dan said, I'm looking forward to Panasonic's answer to the EX-1. Even so, whatever that new Panny offering is, you can be sure it won't solve all my/our problems. Some amount of compromise will have to be made on our parts (unless we win the lottery that is...) I look forward to hearing what your eventual choice will be when you're ready to make it.
