RED Rocket or AJA Kona 3

I am shooting a project next month with the red camera and am trying to figure out if I should be getting the RED Rocket or AJA Kona 3. As far as I can tell they do the same thing but wanted to be sure before dropping that kind of money on anything. Please help.

As far as the workflow I will be attempting I will shoot 4K 16:9 in REDCODE 36
Edit off line
finish online
I use FCP (I will be upgrading from studio 2 to studio 3 for this project)

any tips or advice for production or post with the red one would also be greatly appreciated as this is my first shoot with the RED. thanks again

OS X 10.6.1 (Clean Instal)

The RED Rocket is not yet fully integrated with any software from third parties like Apple.

If you need an I/O card now, get the AJA, it'll work with FCP and Color, but it won't speed up the de-bayering process. That's what the rocket is made for, it's more than just SDI output.
