Le plus ca change.
I've heard the C500 in 4K raw is very very noisy? If you're shooting 4K that is, then check out the custom fans people have built to make it quieter.

I have a custom fan. The C500 is the bargain of the century because it's being sold off very cheaply but the images are incredible. I bought one from Canon which was 80% discounted over the original price with 1 hour on it. With the external fan unit, it's a cinema camera for DSLR money.

They are also incredibly robust.

The only issue is the fan unit but with an external, 80% off original price directly from Canon!!!!! If it's good enough for Scorcese, it's good enough for me!

you bought it from canon? how did that happen
their website doesn't sell anything, you have to go through individual retailers.

They had some kind of display model which they were trying to get rid of.

EDIT: Actually, no, you're right. I spoke with the Canon guy at the warehouse and then bought it through a partner. They wouldn't sell it to me directly so I had to go through someone.

I was thinking about the Sony. Sony had a direct sales channel and I spoke to someone over the phone who sold me one directly a few years back.
