Sony F3 vs Red One (MX)

I'll be shooting a short film relatively soon and I've decided on a super35 sensor camera.

What I'm still pondering is choosing the F3 over the Red One.

Using a week rental as a guideline and not checking "do me a favor" pricing, I come out to the following:

F3: $1875
F3 with updated firmware: $2085
Red One (MX): $2375

Now to squeeze the full color and bitrate out of either F3 setup, I'd need a $200/week Ki Pro Mini to round out the kit, bridging the gap to $100 more for the week for a Red One kit.

While the barebones F3 package is more attractive with a $500 price gap... Id rather just shoot my 5DmkII if I was going to get stuck with 4:2:0.

Thoughts? I'm very familiar with the Red One and I know I can upres the F3 to 2K for projection because it's a sharp camera as well.

We're shooting some lit daytime interiors, with minimal day and night exteriors, no effects. It's not a very demanding situation.

Hm, nevermind. I got a call from my production partner and renting a Red One from another friend will beat out all those prices. Problem solved.
