Is there ANY D-SLR that doesn't take mushy movies?

GH2, GH3, or Blackmagic pocket cam

Though not true DSLRs, they will give you the best resolution because they are best at downsampling from 16MP to 2MP and have a super high bit rate (the Blackmagic is only 2MP and does not have issues). You can pick up inexpensive F/1.4 legacy lenses (old Canon FD mount, etc) if you want shallow DoF too. The GH3 with native lenses is very good at continuous focusing during video like a camcorder too.

Here is a good test:

And here is a GH2 vs the 5DIII

The other options are a Canon 50D or Canon 5DIII and the magic lantern RAW video hack.
