Eric, the Canon XF105/100 have 3D ability with genlock. They shoot 422 50mbps 1080p and have a 3D feature that:

The XF105 has the ability to be paired with another XF105 or XF100 camcorder to provide true stereoscopic 3-D recording. It offers several features to assist with 3-D production including: genlock* for syncing the camcorders.

OIS Lens Shift aids in optically aligning the two camcorders.

A focal length guide displays the zoom position of each camera in relation to each other and calibrates the zoom distance.

The XF105's compact size provides an alternative to large 3-D rigs allowing 3-D crews to work more quickly and efficiently, while providing the needed features to capture exceptional 3-D imagery.

Plus it's small enough it won't need a massive housing to house. Interesting times :)
