HV-20 vs. HVR-V1 Low light performance?

I've watched a few sample clips from both cameras in good and bad lighting conditions, now one question came into my mind. How good is the HV-20 in 24P under low light conditions compared to the V1?
I am reffering to default settings, side by side 24P on both cameras "without tweaking settings".
I have the feeling that the image quality of the HV-20 is close if not better than the HVR-V1 in this conditions.
Can somebody tell me if there is something on the web about this test?

Gio.

I dun think its comparable because one is 3cmos and hv20 is single cmos. 3cmos will always have 3 times better lowlight i guess..
Though i used a Fx7 and a HC7, the difference is so huge in low light.. really huge.
