You know Dennis,
I doubt we'll see any new cameras in the EX1 price range that can also match its quality and capabilities make a surprise entrance at NAB, but then again... there is Scarlet - and the RED team is capable of anything.

If it's not ready or in the EX1's company then it's a mute point. If it's ready and it is indeed RED ONE's baby brother - I would like to own junior.

And bringing it back to thread topic, would also like to see if newer serial numbers of the EX1 are free of the first round of issues...

Lonnie

It's funny because I don't think that many people on this forum have made a purchase in the last few weeks. A good chunk of them are waiting for the situation to unfold last minute.

Well i know you have seen the most recent posts still popping up from our UK friends on the vignette thread...

and a small consolation for US Buyers is, i'm sure US buyer are zipping through the stock of "tainted" models from the original stock faster than some of the smaller markets...

But the Big Question is: when do we get to the fresh "good" stock - or is Sony just relying on us not noticing, caring, or their tech bench fixes...

and yes, I think a lot are waiting...

...and NAB is a big deal to a lot of customers, and to businesses and their new roll outs. For consumers, it's a place to tinker hands on with all the gear and it's all within aisles of each other (or at least the next floor)...

According to Sony and a few top dealers, we are allready on the good stock. I would not want to know what the bad stock was.

Where did all the serial numbers go? ;>) I just purchased an EX-1 at B&H yesterday. Someone said B&H said 6000+? Anyhow, mine is 103707.

William - does your EX1 exhibit any problems that have been posted here thus far?

My EX1 shipped from B&H on 2/25. #102743

I've had no problems to speak of. Of course I recently overcame my fear of shadows in the corner, so the vignetting monster can't harm me now.

Lonnie - I'm off to the edit suite at the moment, in the middle of a big one, so I won't be testing out the EX-1 until this weekend, but will post here next Monday if any issues.

Thanks Michael - and may inquire if you performed these telling but boring rigors of shooting lit white walls and zooming blue sky as well?

(And, maybe the ND gremlins will lose your address all together too!)

When I inquired about the latest s/n they told me that they were at 6000! That's weird that they sent you 3707. I would specifically ask for the latest s/n if you did not allready.

Here is what i'm thinking. They either gave me the wrong number (miscomunication) or if you don't ask for the latest s/n they will just ship out previous units. I can't figure it out
