ext4 support is by default supported on Sony phones since 2012 models already use ext4 as the default format on system partitions. So using ext4 for sdcard would be only tweaking the vold.fstab file to mount it properly.

ZL supports 64GB cards (specs from Sony), Z does not, only up to 32GB (also Sony specs).
I think it's best to wait until it is released and there will definitely be some people trying this.
I live in Belgium and I'd like to order the ZL but as far as I know now the ZL will not be available in Belgium.
I wait until release and if no ZL i will order the Z, for the moment I have a 32Gb card, I'll start of using this one and maybe in the future I'll have a look for a bigger card.
If it is not supported I also woder how they do it and maybe this can be avoided by installing a curstom rom one they become available.
On all my previous phones I installed cards bigger in size than officialy supported and up to now I never had any problem.

Unfortunately my ZL doesn't seem to support exFAT or NTFS. That could change before the release date, but as of right now no such luck.

Bass is quite good. The volume can also be turned up very loud, it seems to be much louder than my Nexus 4 or GS3.

The exFAT is a windows propriety driver. So unless sony get's a license from windows then you'll get exFat support.

The NTFS is not a block type filesystem and is really bad if you're using it as a mass storage. You'll likely end up destroying your sdcard if you use NTFS for a long time so it's not enabled by default. But it would be easy to enable when devs get their hands on the kernel source.

I think kernel might be able to support it, if I'm correct,
