Video focus - target is Blackmagic?

The more I look at this the more I think that the target is more Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera than other mirror less cameras like the Sony.

We'll know definitively if it does ProRes instead of AVCHD but even if not the V3 has distinctive trade offs over the BPCC. 120 fps 720p, better ergonomics, much better AF in exchange for 10 bit ProRes and Raw and 13 stop DR.

The V3 looks to be an awesome b-roll cam with the ability to do full frame stills while shooting 1080/60p.  With the 10-30 PD it will be a small and balanced camera to perch on your monopod for video work.  For wedding pros I think they'd take a second look at the V3 for that role given the video performance even at higher ISOs.
