JVC Gy-200 v/s Sony Xd cam EX1

Hello guys this is my first messege after months of reading, searching and investigating in the forum. I need a little help in my future camera choice. I created this thread because one off my choices is the Jvc Gy-201E (by the way Im chilean but I live in sweden), now after all the publicity and discution in the forum, the another choice is the Sony EX. I know that the comparison between them is only theoretic but I will read some opinions, the image quality comparison, lens, work in NLE system, etc. (I know is all in theory).

If it´s important I need the camera for diverse works like shortfilms, documetaries, maybe publicity, etc. And they are in the same price level.

Help me with my choice.

Greetings to all of you in the forum, and sorry for my english!!

Sorry if I´m repeating my self, I have done the same question in the sony thread.

That's a tough question, mainly since the EX is not out. The verdict is still out.
Having said that, the EX and JVC are different breeds. The EX with its fixed lens and good image quality makes a decent run around cam. The JVC with
interchangeable lens, shoulder mount and good image quality makes a pro looking cam.

If you're looking to blend into a crowd, the EX would do that.
The JVC looks like a pro cam.
They both have their plusses.
