So many of these cameras are 8-bit and/or 422, I don't think going beyond ProRes 422 will buy you anything. The Red footage would definitely benefit from ProRes 444, but going from the original R3Ds might yield more range.

Coming up with an overall strategy for file formats in a workflow is one of the major decisions you have to make when you start a large post project. One can make good arguments as to mixed formats or getting most of them converted to something that works well with your conform/color-correction platform. A lot depends on your available budget and schedule.

A Google search reveals that many, many people have run into the ProRes 422 limitation for XDCam. BTW, I assume you mean QT LT in your offline format, which I agree is not good enough to use for color-correction and final release.
