[Tim Wilson] "FCP 7 will be usable until a new camera format requires a change..."

I'm not sure I agree. FCP 7 pretty much hit the wall with high data rate ProRes. If you attempt to do a big session with lots of ProRes4444 or even ProRes mixed with Canon XF codecs you quickly run out of gas ("out-of-memory" errors) and crash a lot. Mixed codec timelines get very glitchy when part of the timeline is rendered and part unrendered. So yes, as an offline edit tool, it still works, but it's becoming increasing a PITA to deal with when they are better options available.
