To be sure I would rent the EXcam and do a test shoot.

There definitely is a skew effect in fast pans, but only on the background, if you are following an object.

I do a lot of shooting of boats and jet-skis. And I have never had a problem with a shot, that a client pointed out, even though I can see the effect, because I know of it.

If you want to see a good demonstration of the effect do rapid swish-pans continually changing direction, with vertical lines like doors and windows or distant houses or flagpoles. The effect is like a funhouse mirror. But how often do you shoot like that? I have never actually used a shot like that.

I do know some shooters that do car races with long lenses that find CMOS chips unusable. But I also know several who shoot Nascar and short track, for broadcast, with EXcams and never even commented on the effect.
