The HPX3100 is price to much like the trade-in deal on an HPX3700, making it seem redundant.

If the rumors I'm hearing about an impending large sensor P2 Varicam are true, and under $30K, this is what I would buy to compliment our HPX2700 and offer a step up from the AF100. A Fujinon/Arri Alura 18-80mm PL-mount cine zoom would be a nice combination. I'm hoping for AVC-Ultra, offering 4:4:4 color space and higher bit rate recording than AVC-Intra 100.

While not as trendy, a 2/3" camera/ENG zoom is still the best tool for docs and any kind of project that requires quick/get it right on the first take. Large sensor cameras and cine lenses aren't conducive to that need.
