Does Anyone Do Any Keying with the HM700?

I'm in the market for an HD camera having outgrown my XL2 and am seriously considering the HM700. I have been getting more requests from clients for HD projects so I've been doing some research. I use FCP so the QT format of the HM700 is great and I love the ENG shoulder-mount design. One of the reasons I'm upgrading to an HD cam is that I will be doing a lot of chroma key work for web-based flash files and an HD camera makes a ton of difference in the final output. I know the HM700's chroma sampling is 4:2:0 so it's not as great as the P2 cams for this purpose. Does anyone use this camera for any chroma key projects and if so, what were the results? I'm sure it has to be better than my XL2!
Thanks in advance!

I actually use the HM700 all the time for green screen. Most of what I do isn't publicly viewable (because it is previz for unreleased films) but there is this example I shot on green screen with the HD100. INTERxVENT Canada | Better health for life. | In-Lab Promo Video

The compositing was done in Apple Motion.

I wonder if someone hooked up the new aja ki-pro via the sdi, just how good the keys could be.
