In fact two of the most successful high-end independent directors, Danny Boyle and Aronofsky, prefer 2/3" chips (SI2k) or S16mm. Avatar and Miami Vice was also filmed with mostly 2/3" chips. 3D, in many ways, is better to shoot on with smaller sensors too and with its size, it seems that the Ikon would be ideal for it.
The Ikon, to me, is ideal for docs and features because of what you have to work with in post. It may not be the best set-up for Acam on a feature but should deliver some great stuff when put to work overall. I seems kind of like a modern equivalent to a S16mm bolex.

A talented cinematographer / director team can get great "shallow focus" images on 2/3" or 16mm cameras.

It seems that the cherished thing about new technology always references a limited DOF, when that's not always necessary to make an elegant or appropriate style. What happened to staging in depth, such as Renoir or Welles? The wide angle lens and some interesting blocking!
I know it depends on the story though. Just a blunt statement.
