At this point the Scarlet isn't something to be thrown into a serious discussion...

I would, if I were you, consider looking for a nice used Sony Z1U. You get a very nice 3 CCD cam with great low light performance, and you can put the rest of your money toward expanding your kit.

From what I've been reading if you're going to budget for a RED Scarlet you'd better include a RED Rocket ($4,750) and a RED Breakout box ($1,200) along with it. It kicks the price up substantially.

I'm giving serious consideration to the Sony HVR-Z7U. Interchangeable lenses, both tape and file based (includes a HVR-MRC1), $5,000. Stepping down to the HVR-Z5U and adding the HVR-MRC1 only saves you $100 so there is virtually no reason to go there.
