I'm very pleased with my FX-1. I don't think it's quite the revolution that my VX-1000 was when I picked that up about 10 years ago, but it's a great camera.
Better formats than HDV will become available (check out http://www.red.com
and many others), but I believe that this camera will last as a good workhorse for some time.
I'm using mine with Cineform software (adobe premiere) for realtime HDV editing.
I'm also experimenting with a 35mm lens adapter for narrow dof
Here's a rough version of my current project which I'm about to finish up:
