I've mentioned it because someone mentioned Grass Valley as a reference to what SONY is doing, and it simply does not compare one thing to the other... There are very BIG digital cinema cameras out there... you are of course comparing a 1/2 CMOS to a FULL SUPER 35mm CMOS or very near like RED ONE or the 2K approach from Silicon Imaging, and SONY is WAY behind that in CMOS technology... for now.

CMOS is in fact much better in terms of linear contrast response, and as so you should get way better Black response with it...BUT... companies like CANON, among others simply kill this kind of dynamic with BAD internal processing. SONY is on its way but is far from being the best, so I remain with my 2 cents, CMOS is still very beta in low end cameras.

The EX1 is a Great camera, regarding final considerations.
