Now that's the camera I'm looking for. I don't need the exchangable lense on the Z7 and can't justify the Z7's price tag in my head for what's beginning to look like, to me (from what little I've read/seen) as "no better than best in class HDV image quality." I don't want to spend similar money to a Z7 on an EX1 with it's step-up in image quality/bigger CMOS size/35MBs data rate because I still want tapes (as back-up) and don't like the price of SxS cards.

Come on Sony, I'm sure I'm not the only one!

The Online Outlet is a different site you link to through the Sony Style USA main site. The Outlet and Refurbished site has FX7s and VX2100s, but as noted above the FX1s were gone as of this morning. Too bad; last night I decided to pick up one as a backup and obviously waited too long. They were on the Outlet site for all of five days.

The regular site does have the FX1 for full price (as does B&H, a trusted sponsor); I assume that's what you meant by FX2.
