I have looked into the Sony FS700 and there is much to like about it. It would set me up for 4K in the future and the super slow motion and timelapse is a feature I would like to have. My concern is the form factor in trying to use it as a run-n-gun camera. Also, at 5' 6", I want to be able to access the controls under the LCD and see the LCD while the camera is on a tripod. I saw a friend of mine shoot with the FS700 while on a tripod and it looked like he was accessing some buttons by feel and memory.
