Nice to see some competition for Panasonic's somewhat underwhelming AF100 and good that Sony's realised the price/performance expectations are considerably below the F3, but no, DSLRs will be around for some time yet..

I agree with Rainer. That Sony FS100 looks sweet, can't wait to try one out but I'm not getting rid of my 7D any time soon.

Here's some footage shot with the NEX-FS100:

I personally love the idea or relegating my T2i to taking still photos, and not having to worry about it overheating or trying to work out a Rube Goldberg viewfinding system to provide director and client monitors while trying to pull critical focus.

I'll bet some lenses will cost more than the body.

Think it'll ever come down to $299 with a lens?

Well, pretty attractive camera. And I could use my Zeiss primes. But this time I think I'll curb my enthusiasm for getting in early. The EX1 suffered a number of early bugs, none of them painful because Sony stood by their product -- otherwise would have been very painful!

With a screenshot of the footage in VMS by the look of it ??

Interesting that it shoots 1080p50/60 whereas its big brother the F3 only overcranks in 720p.

I believe this is a record issue rather than a camera one. The SxS cards don't have a 1080p50/60 record format, so the F3 won't record to it internally. I've seen reports on the F3 forums that it currently will output 1080p60 through its dual link HD-SDI connectors -- but of course you then need something that can record that data stream.
