JVC GY-HM170U (4k) cameras for performance work?

(I posted this in wedding and events; but wondering if it needs to be here.)

We currently use Canon XHA1s HDV cameras, and run firewire cables into Macbook Pros (firewire to thunderbolt adapter) and record using quicktime. Here's an example from earlier this year:
We can't depend on the cameras for use with tape anymore, and want to start using an HDMI video switcher for faster distribution.
We have been looking at the JVC GY-HM170U (4k) cameras and were wondering if anyone has used them for performance work?
There's not a lot of recent input on them; but BH still has them marked down under 1.3k. Daylit samples look fabulous, compared to footage with our XHA1s cameras.

See my reply to your post in the "green screen thread" in the other jvc subsection.
