I need advice on the JVC HD101


I have been reading a lot of good stuff about the new JVC HD101 or 100 camera, which is really tempting me to buy it...

I already have a Digital Betacam DVW 790 camera, but now I'm looking more towards buying an affordable camera to give me that extra film look to my productions, whether they were documentaries or movies...

Now how good is the JVC HD101 cameras? Are they capable of giving the viewer a film look close to the Sony Cinealtas? Can we use such cameras for the production of a medium budget ranged film and then transfering it onto 35mm? Of course putting in mind that the right lighting and cameraman are running the show... I also do own an editing suite that supports HD by the way...

I also have been advised to get the mini 35 lens for it, is that of any good in order to get better film look results?

So, is it worth upgrading to the JVC HD101 or should I not waste my money, because its results are similar to the Digi Beta camera that I already have? Will I get that film look that I need with this camera?

Are there any sites of movie trailors or videos of professionals who have used this camera for us to see?

Thanks for the advice...
