I quote: " I generally don't find I need more than 12 dB of gain on even the most challenging lighting situations with the FS100, but if I had to use the EA50 I would need 21 dB of gain to achieve the same level of exposure. For a camcorder this would result in an extremely noisy image, but for a large-sensor video camera, 21 dB of gain is very usable."

So in other words, it's not the end of the world. 21db of Gain is more than useable from what i've found. I even use footage all the way up to 24db and i've capped my camera to not exceed that.
Filming at a very dark Allerton Castle in North Yorkshire a few weeks back my EA50 was all the way up to 30db - 24db would have still resulted in a too dark image - Fortunately Neat Video saved the day and cleaned up the very grainy footage - 30db is just usable if cleaned up

Yeah I've settled on the FS100, I need to wait a bit to be able to swing it, but its what I'll go with. Thanks a lot for all the feedback everyone, that was super helpful.
