Thats my dream too

ad a redrock matte box and follow focus and your all set.

the only thing is what if i switch the ex1 with the hpx 500

now that would be a killer rig. Unless the ex1 resolves better

The great thing about the EX1 over the HPX is you can use it's LCD for critical focus. The HPX has the same awful LCD as the HVX meaning an external monitor is essential.

How is the hpx's viewfinder for forcusing?
By the way I was thinking about that same lens set. Will those three lenses cover just about anything or should one get a longer zoom aswell considering the LEX/EX1's lowlight abilities?

I wonder how would the Ex1 stack up to the Hpx 500. Considering Alot of people cannot tell the difference between the EX and a F350, Which cost twice as much as the Hpx 500?
