The advantages of the EX-3 over the EX-1 are nearly nonexistent but also, EX-3 still only records 4:2:0 in camera, uses mpeg-2 long GOP compression, does not have the big chip that the AF100 does and the lenses available for it can't be used on enough cameras to call it an investment. These are all things that are still causing problems.

I couldn't agree more with Noah. The lack of MFT primes is an issue but panasonic has at least confirmed a new 25 1.4 prime available over the summer and there other new and reworked lenses in the works. I'd kill for an MFT cine-zoom but that's just a dream i suppose. But maybe it wouldn't be too crazy to have another Leica designed kit zoom specifically for the AF100 or AF series if that ever comes to be.
