Yes, I use the waveform regularly, but have to admit not always. I use a scope on the NLE to correct and verify levels. I see the video in the VF, and it is around 80% white, but when it gets to the editor it's more like 65 or 70.

Yes, FCP 7 handles the Sony mxf files, but only a few at a time. What I usually do is use Catalyst Browse to convert to ProRez 1080p, and edit that way. I will drop in the 4K mxf files here and there to be able to blow up and/or crop the frame to get a better look. FCP handles that just fine.

Do you think Catalyst Browse might be doing something? When I use it, I use the Rec 709 color space.
