There is an informal review of the 300, EX1, JVC700 and Canon 5D in last month's ICG Magazine, it was non-technical and didn't get into the codecs. The 300 was chosen for the best ergonomics, form factor, good resolution, color, but was found to be the worst in low light. The JVC 700 did nothing that set it apart other than the convenience of QT file recording. The EX1 "punched above its weight" in image quality terms, according to them. The Canon 5D didn't outdo the video
cameras except in low light ability and had the usual aliasing on the edges, worse ergonomics than the EX1.

The 300 has the best codec by far, in my opinion, but the EX1 is fast and clean at the front end. I'm glad the 300 has -3db, I had forgotten that, since my tests were trying to get my Letus Ultimate 35mm adapters to work with the stock Fuji lens vs. a true test of the camera.
