Zacuto Recoil? Any thoughts?

Anyone have any experience using these? I really like the idea of balancing the camera on your shoulder but not sure how well the ergonomics of the camera would work without have access to the controls of the back of the camera.

I'm planning on putting a 5d Mark 3 on it and I know you can use the Okii controller but I'm not sure if that would be quick enough for live events to change the ISO, aperture, etc.

I really like how the new tornado/z drive will act as a handle/follow focus.

I'm currently using a Zacuto Scorpion rig but am looking into purchasing a C100/C300 down the line which is why I'm interested in the Recoil.
