For me there's three gotchas:

1) it doesn't come with the shoulder-mount and the EVF - those add an extra $1,900 to the price.

Grading is everything with the Blackmagic cameras - the BMD 'film' look is *incredibly* flat - you can pump 100% saturation into Resolve and it'll *still* look washed-out - if you want Canon-like...
