Is 4K *REALLY* all that important ? 
My impression was that it was mostly hype. I suppose as time goes on it will be mainstream but how far away is that?
If you could only chose ONE feature above any other thing, what would it be?

I always shoot 4k to help me in post production:
Helps me frame the shots better,
Use software stabilization,
Publish high quality FHD

One of the most important features IMHO is Daynamic Range.

It appears that it only records FHD internally. I will pass this one. May be next version or another cam that does good quality 4k internally.

Hummm 24mm it's really too narrow. With a flat port it's even narrow. I see it as a very specific tool.
It a shame that Sony chose that infamous shape for its real action cam fdr x3000.
I had the opportunity to use it and it's the best one. Optical stabilization and amazing image quality.
Unfortunately no uw housing and no way to have a display in a useful way.

If it is 24mm full frame equivalent as advertised, it is not too narrow. I agree with kc_moses that it could serve as a B-cam. When shooting either macro or ultra-wide (weitwinkel) angle, the 24mm sets in between and would capture angle of view that will add value for both lenses. Of course, it all depends on the image quality and how closely it color matches with the A-cam :).
What do you guys think?

In Topic: What are my RAW options as at August 2017?

There is a little Chineese player on the market for few years now and have introduced the Terra 6k and down to 4K. It is called Kinefinity. The challenge is the delivery timeframe and after sale support. But here is what I think the good side:
+ Good image quality with internal RAW (their RAW format is not directly supported by Davinci but one can transcode to DNG using their Software which adds on step to the workflow. Unless one uses Scratch which directly support KRW
+ support for several mounts including KineEnhancer for EF Canon mounts (speed booster). (No continuous autofocus)
+ Size is unbelievably small. Fits in the palm of your hand. I know it doesn't matter to you but believe me after spending a week dragging my FS7 and pushing it in a wheelbarrow to the diving boat although I was staying at their resort beach. Size and weight are really factors important factor.
+ It comes with 5" monitor that draws power form the Camera directly like (Sony FS7).
+ Price point is good (6K for $6K) for a working package.
+ Not very challenging to house due to right shape & user interface.

Now for me that's a dream camera to house. I'm just waiting for the right moment and more mileage/depreciation on the FS7 :)
