Yes sir, it is, a little. It normally retails for $9,200. Small difference.

Even then, still a far, far smaller difference between the two than with UK pricings.

One thing the EX has going for it against the Canon is if you work in broadcast.
At least in Norway XDCAM is becoming the new standard and I have often been able to rent out my EX-3 as a B-cam on productions as it cuts very well with the 2/3 PDW-700 and 800 cameras that I normaly use.

So, lots of different things to consider when getting a new camera.

Unless I really fall in love with my AF101, I plan to sell it off after my next production and put the money towards a Sony F3.

The AVCHD is really bugging me, and at this production a NANO is not an option.
