I think it's a fine camera with good contrast latitude, rich colors, and a 1/2" chip for a bit better control of depth-of-field than most pro-sumer cameras. I believe you can achieve a variety of looks with the camera, not just "glossy." It's all in the lighting and composition. The camera's one downside at this time is a lack of progressive recording. However, I have a de-interlacing process I use as described in the following article:

I've been mostly doing documentary and industrial work with it, but am interested in noarrative projects. How important is it to have 16:9 capability? I can shoot with the 16:9 guides and then letterbox in post. Is this sufficient for indie type of projects? It seems that unless you have a camera the shoots 16:9 native that there is a variant of that workflow going on anyway.
Of course, one can also shoot 4:3 and just go with that.
