Sony FS7 4K Avid Workflow

I've used Premiere + FCPX/7 but have managed to avoid Avid for my entire career...until now? We have lots of TBs of footage shot on a Sony FS7 / 4K / XAVC-L that I thought I could ingest directly into FCPX, but it seems I would need to use EditReady to rewrap the .mxf files and then transcode all of the clips. Would I need to do this with Avid? Or can I import directly and transcode within the NLE? I know little about AMA/linking workflows, but I can learn as long as I don't have to copy (rewrap) my original media + transcode from there.

It's a feature documentary so I don't plan on editing natively fyi...just want to create 1080 proxies from my 4k footage and relink back to the original media for finishing. The roundtrip AVID ---> Resolve workflow seems solid except most of this film will be in slow motion and was shot in both 23.98 + 60p, which I worry might be difficult to relink back to in Resolve in addition to reframing and other speed changes.
