You can't argue with 1/2 inch chips.

But dealing with Long GOP in edit and post together with a substantially smaller color space isn't for me and many others.

I know Chris argues that the rolling shutter issue is overstated, but my experience is that it is a concern.

From what I've read, the EX1 is only about a half stop better than the HVX200 despite those larger chips.

Head to head, 1080/24p to 1080/24p, same rec 709 gamma (STD3 vs. HD NORM), the EX1 is 1/2 stop faster than the HVX.

But if you go to 1080/60i it gains a stop, and the HVX loses a bit, so for 1080/60i the EX1 would be about 1.5 stops faster or so.

Also, when dropping to 720p mode the EX1 gains about 1/2 stop, so in 720p mode it's about a total of 1 stop faster.
