Sony large sensor cams

The Large Sensor Camera that I have pixel envy for currently is the Sony F3:


They have a much cheaper version (NEX-FS 100U) that is really popular due to having the 35mm-ish-size sensor, but it is hobbled in a few ways from a video pro's perspective:

But they've just announced, pre-NAB the updated version which looks very cool (addresses a lot of the issues, plus does super slo-mo and will do full 4k with a future upgrade) the 700U:

So the F3 costs too much but is awesome, the 100U is way cheaper but not something I would really want to own, but I'll be really interested to see exactly what and how much the 700 turns out to be - supposed to be under $10k, but I'm not sure if that's with or without lens.

I was kind of hoping for a little brother of the F3 rather than a big brother of the FS100, but I imagine they're selling a lot more 100's and they're cheaper to produce.  I still think there should be a PMW-EX5 or something that updates the EX1 and 3 to a large sensor.  But that's probably not possible in that camera's architecture - again, not sure, just wishful thinking.  This 700 could mostly be it.  Plus the path to 4k inspires confidence in its future viability.

I broke down and pimped my EX1 with a matte box, rails and focus knob from Shoot35.  Nice bang for the buck vs. the major players.  So now there's a place to mount the Samurai and 7" monitor.
