Are these all unprocessed clips from the Ninja?  I assume the different profiles were done without manual white balance?   Some jarring magenta water.  Also there was a sequence where the AF jumped around.  You may want to cut that out.
From 1.35 onwards the lens reflection rings are quite prevalent in some scenes, especially around the Thistlegorm.  The macro looked great.  Can you share the profile settings?

Boy, there is a lot of negativity on Sony.   :)  
Obviously with a small housing (even with a HDMI recorder), the probability of panning fast enough (none of that hand shot shaky stuff they use to acerbate the rolling shutter) is going to be still pretty minimal unless you purposely want that handheld look. Quite a bit of it can be reduced in post as well.

The Sony Bionz processor and sensor technology seems to love boosting that green channel for low light performance.  The LED color bleeding can be looked at 2 ways, that Sony's products are defective or that the cinematographer should use higher quality LED lights! :)

 

I'm also a little shocked about the Hermés tie in! :)  But like everything with expert craftsmanship and exclusivity have a price. :)

The best noise performance comes from pixel pitch.  If the Bionz processor isn't too bad, the noise performance should be very good.  The 400k ISO is a gimmick but paired with a f1.4 lens @ ISO64k isn't too noisy or low res, it can probably "see better than" the human eye! :)
