i did not play with the miller #1022, that's the arrow 25 as i did with the ds-20 as i had no need for that much weight for my EX1 setup. that said, for a $2500 head, the arrow 25 has what i like with "number" dials for counterbalance and separate pan and tilt number settings. extremely precise and i would go there if i had more than 20 lbs of setup weight over the sachtler dv8

i am not sure though with your 35mm and a monitor with EX1, your setup is below the weight level of the arrow 25. it does look big and solid enough for the F350 and larger!

I am thinking about it with a 35mm and zoom lens + a monitor so the weight is more than the Ex-1 alone.
