Interesting but still expensive.

I assume; though aside from the purchase price, where you'd see the savings would be in the rental rates; which may be able to move people off of offering from canon and others?

I don't know. The Alexa HD is a beautiful camera but this is probably is going to be a 10 to 12 K weekly rental.

True; but to a producer, sometimes, ever single dollar saved is worth it. So if say you're only needing 1080 and know you won't ever go RAW, why not? I could see this shooting music documentaries (e.g. following a band on tour and recording concerts) or real documentaries for that matter; and those few bucks saved will probably be mighty helpful for productions of a certain (lower) budget.
