It won't do it in-camera, but you can most definitely shoot against a greenscreen and do your chroma key in your NLE. Basically, shoot at the max possible quality. Check this video out:

At about 5:40, they discuss using MagicLantern (5D only for now) to get the best possible key for a greenscreen. Pretty basic tutorial.

I love it when people say I can't do it. People have told me never to use a DVX-100 for green screen. Yet, I am able to pull a great matte from my footage (even though I'm done with tape). I've pulled great mattes from consumer cameras. Here's the truth of the matter: if you are willing to take the necessary steps to maintain the quality (you aren't just looking for a quick fix), you can do anything. Same basic caveats apply for general green screening and for DSLR video. There are limitations, but they are not roadblocks.
