Assuming the same lens, then I'm sure you're right about the EX3 and 320 being at least extremely similar in low light....
If you look at the specs one would say the 320 must be much better in low-light than the EX3.

Maybe John is referring to the PDF brochure that had a mistake (maybe on purpose for NAB buzz) that said the camera was rated at f12 at 2000 lux. But another part of the same document said f10 at 2000 lux.

I was surprised to hear reports that the much more expensive list price PMW-320 would be pretty much the same camera as the EX-1/3. Seems like quite a premium to pay just for a form factor change.

Maybe the street price will be a lot closer to the EX-3.

You're not confusing the 320 with the 350 are you? They both have very similar bodies, but the 320 has 1/2" chips, the 350 2/3" chips.

Even if the fundamental chips are the same between the EX3/320, there are many differences between them besides form factor - ability to take integral radio mics on the 320 being just one.
