If you're doing a lot of 'run and gun' style shooting you would be better served by a dedicated video camera such as the XF100 - being able to record sound without a separate recorder and being able to plug XLRs straight in is a big plus IMHO. The Canon being a 50mb/s machine will give excellent quality too, though most any modern pro HD camera will give you quality enough for web and SD DVD.

Left-field suggestion would be something like a Panasonic GH2, and a few bits of grip/sound kit to make it work ergonomically - hacked (there's a very well developed firmware hack out for it now ) the quality available is outstanding, but you'd sacrifice a little usability for that. Stunning results in the right hands though, and would come in on budget.
