As to your question regarding DOF. If you're wide-open f 1.9 on EX3's stock-lens and on the tele-end of the zoom, you can get quite nice and shallow DOF, but as soon as you zoom out a little bit everything is sharp from here to nebraska. The size of the EX3's chip is nowhere near as big as the 7D's and the DOF gets very deep quickly on wider lenses.

Also a lot will depend on how you intent to tell your story and what that story is.

However, I've tested the Canon 550D (T2i Rebel) against the EX3, and the HD image off of the EX3 is a lot better all-around -- sharper, less artifacty -- it's just that it doesn't have the shallow-focus look.
