Hmmm....well I have the FS-100 so let me try a couple of these.
First, I don't know for sure about the white balance thing, other than
to say, go into the menu, WB Preset/Manual WB temperature. You can
actually adjust the white balance, and it will show you the number as you adjust it, as well as the video updating live on the LCD. So if
you are outside, you can manually adjust that number, and see the
effect, changing the number from 3600 - to 6500K has on the image.
It changes in 100 from 3600 to 3700 to 3800 and so on.
Going to this menu will also display the current color temperature
the white balance is set at.

As for the timecode thing, mine came preset from the factory to behave as you WANT yours to behave, so I haven't messed around with that at all.

Thirdly, I have the kit lens. It does NOT look soft at all, wide shots
look VERY nice and lots of resolution. However, I don't think it has
quite as much resolution as the EX-1 does. It is also amazing in
low light, much better than the EX-1. Did you have some setting
on automatic, where the camera was adjusting the shutter speed or
iris even though you were gained up?
