I actually worked on a feature a while ago that did this (The Art of War 2) and it raised a few eyebrows when post swore it would cut together seamlessly. In fact, we probably shot a third of the film on the thing (it was a martial art heavy story, and the director loved the maneuverability of the thing). To be fair, I haven't seen it, and I'm sure the glaring flaws in the script would camouflage any glaring flaws in the cinematography, but it has been done at least once.

^^ I remember reading that the HVX looses resolution as you stop down. Anything above a 5.6 and it was quite a lot of information loss!
