That is a nice list. I concur- especially the ProRes 422- would save a lot of time getting the video into Final Cut... :)

I dug into the Canon web site a bit more to read some of the detailed specs. There are some features like the dual MXF recording + MP4 that seem interesting, but I'm not sure how much practical use they'd be (especially with the limitations on the codec).

It seems like you need a few of these cameras to get the real value out of the added features. In my situation, I'm usually shooting my XF100 on a tripod, and a DSLR for close up action, and then mixing in post (which always requires color grading / correction). If I was only shooting video I could see the benefit of having 2 XF200's, especially with the timecode.
