I was watching a featurette on the Blu-Ray for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and I saw then using 435s for some high-speed shots and they mainly did it handheld/Steadicam. But from what I understand, the 435 wasn't designed for handheld/Steadicam and/or is too heavy for that purpose.

Yeah, it's not really designed for Steadicam work but you can adapt almost anything to a Steadicam if you don't mind wearing out your operator... Christopher Nolan has put IMAX cameras on Steadicams after all.

435 is a great camera for steadicam, but you should get the vertical 400' steadicam mags that will give minimal weight shifting during the shot.  In terms of handheld, its a bit front heavy but not too bad... again, get the 400' mags for that work also.
