confound it !!! I was JUST and I mean JUST about to go for the M3!! I'm a pro video shooter and as much as I'd like to afford the higher end Cinema lines I told my self it's better to spend on glass. But what of this phantom C50? could it be a better choice for video then the M3?...However I guess the M3's resale value will always be there if this turns out getable. Canon you cause me grief!
