I really love this camera. Sure, there are better video cameras out there, in just about every respect you can think of. But this one has found a great combination of features at its price point.
The things I like: * Large image sensor -- you can actually get a little bit of a shallow depth of field, and really crank the gain in low-light situations when you need it. * It produces a really good quality image * It is quite flexible -- there are a lot of configuration options * The ClearImage Zoom actually works pretty well * Generally good build quality
The things that irritate me: * 4K recording is 8-bit 4:2:0 instead of 10-bit 4:2:2 * 4K recording is limited to 24/25/30 frames per second. A 60fps option would be nice. * It can only output 4K to two destinations at a time. So you can output via HDMI and the LCD monitor at the same time until you start recording, then one of those gets shut off. Seems like a silly...
I bought this and tested it out in 4k and various other formats. Camera was easy to setup and easy to use. Also had nice weight, and a walking shot had excellent stabilization. Package from Amazon came quickly and well secured.

Cons: -Full Auto isn't full, you can accidentally press the auto focus button and be in manual focus. Full Auto should lock out this button. -Lack of touch screen. The menu controls on top are clunky. If a $200 handycam can have touch screen, so can this. -The whole screen going blank when eyepiece is used is a pain. There's a button to cancel it that I keep having to press for eyepiece use while shooting outdoors. Want the screen to stop turning off when holding camera to chest for steadiness? Hit button. Then you want to look through the eyepiece.. hit the button again. Rinse, Repeat. -The shotgun clamp is too large, had to wrap a rubber strip around even my Sony mic to get a firm hold. -When you set it up to fill one card then write to another, an annoying flashing icon appears...
