3D Rig

We are planning a 3D horror film to be projected on 3D. What is the best technology available at the moment for rental?
Should I go for Pace or REDs or SI-2Ks? Are there any non-DIY options? I want to meet DCI compliance standards so I'll probably need a 2K resolution. This automatically cancels out most prosumer formats.
I would prefer tried and tested formats and camera systems so the pipeline is smooth, even if turns out to be a tad expensive. What kind of rental costs can I expect and how much "Extra" does a 3D shoot add to a production that is otherwise neutral in all aspects (discounting post production)?
Searching the web has left me exhausted. There is so much info but nothing quite reliable and definite that helps making an informed decision. I hope to avoid surprises.

I would hazard an extremely roughly guess that stereoscopic will add at LEAST and extra 70% to your camera department costs.

If doing a good job is your first and foremost concern you will need a professional, experienced stereographer to manage your shoot. Finding one should be your top priority.
