[Nick Righton] "1. Would I see a noticeable difference in picture quality between the FX1 and XDCAM EX?

Some people would. Main differences would be 1/2" chips, 10 bit 4:2:2 coming from the camera head out of the HD-SDI port. Much better low light performance if that's important to your shoot.

On SxS you can record 35mbps VBR compared to 25mbps CBR of FX1.

HPX or F series would help if you need shoulder mount or, in F series, recording to XDCAM disc instead of SxS card. In many respects the EX1 has more features than 335 although that has a changeable lens. Are those features important? The best I can say is, that depends on what you want/need.
