Yes, it has 1 card slot, but it takes the sony 128gb FMC, i'm not sure if the EX1 does, but if i remember correctly, it does not. Also, stop the lens down to f11 and you won't have a hard time keeping focus as long as you stay roughly the same distance from the subject. Yeah, no ND is a bummer, but you could just use regular screw-ons or a mattebox and some 4x4s. And i mean, people really exaggerate the whole shutter speed thing and blow it way out of proportions. Seriously, shooting above 1/60 ISN'T the end of the world. If you're doing events/ENG, the reduced motion blur is actually a good thing. And if you're doing narratives, you can afford the time to play with a mattebox and filters. Maybe its just me, but i really don't find the look of high shutter speeds to be much of a problem unless you're shooting at night, in which case you may run into storbing with artifical lighting, but in low light, you woundn't be using a filter any way, would you? Stillmotion shoots alot of their DSLR stuff without filters at 1/250 or higher and the footage still looks amazing with barely any harsh jittering.
Yes, it definitely isn't a full-on ENG camera (I'd take the EX1 over this any day for ENG), rather, the EA50 is more suited for events/narrative. So, is the EA50 perfect? No. Is it better than the EX1? in some instance, yes. In others, no. Would i take it over a DSLR? Yes, any day of the month.
