I don't know that either of these cameras are your best bet, especially if "price is not problem." For the best quality, look into the soon-to-arrive Panasonic SPX3000 (P2-based media) or the 2/3" Sony HD XDCAM (don't recall model number). They are both 2/3" 1080p sensor cameras, so they offer very high quality imagers and can use a Pro35 adaptor to take 35mm film format PL mount lenses. I would say however that this set up is not particularly good for "non set up scene documentary" work as they will be quite large and cumbersome.

For excellent high speed shooting and file management, look into the Vision Research Phantom cameras. They will directly take 35mm PL mount lenses, shoot uncompressed raw and save to hard drive (somewhat similar to RED workflow). The Phantom HD is a 2K camera that can shoot up to 1000 frames per second. You might even want it as your A-camera and make the RED your B-camera! ;-)

Note: We represent the Phantom cameras in North America.
