Yeah I'd go XLH or G1 over the Z1/V1 - nicer lens, better picture, better controls on the body too. The XL is around £4.5k (From us anyway), so you'd have some play for another lens or - as suggested - hardware for lossless capture, or (if you've not got it already) Final cut studio 2.

For a little more than 16K you could go with the XDHD cam the 330 and the time you would save in work flow would make up for the price of the camera in the long run.

Please answer this as a cameraman and not as a producer AKA don't think about budget.
Sorry but this is a ridiculous question.
You can not select a camera without knowing budgetary guidelines, workflow considerations, shot types & such.
And in all honestly, what chance is there of this movie going to film for distribution if the DP has to ask an internet forum what camera he should use.

Jim - how in the world can you be willing to spend $16k USD and not even know what chromatic aberration or moire is?

Something is not adding up.
