I am sure it will be great. I have not decided if I want a pure video cam.

You can always pick up one of the many deals on bodies like the GX1 that is selling for $199.  Since they use the same lenses you can share.

The Blackmagic camera will be amazing (the current models are getting rave reviews) because un like DSLRs it has fewer pixels.  That means each pixel gathers more light and the image won't get destroyed getting down-scaled - and yes, those DSLRs that need to convert from 18 or 24MP down to 1920x1080 actually end up with much less (and often have bad moire) because of the difficulties.
