That Panasonic murders the FX, I have friends who use both. Im currently colleting my funds to get the DVX100B i desided, CMOS Tend to have Gnarly Problems like my current JVC is a Consumer grade with a CMOS, The tend to leave Frames Blank or destroy shots. I pretty sure Dave King uses the HMC150 and a glidecam. If you wanna check footy Quality here is his vimeo account

miniDV tape is a dead technology compared to SD card. Capturing is a breeze on SD. opteka death is good for the money but has lower glass quality than century.

Panasonic HMC150 for sure. I just got mine and the footage really stands up to other higher end HD cameras in the market like the HVX200 or the HPX170. The workflow is a little more tedious but still totally worth it. Super affordable too. A lot of the other Vital Feature contributprs use it too. Michael Mcqueen (Mangler), Glenn PP, and I believe John Hicks. You can look up their stuff if you want to see some more examples. Two HMC videos are on the front page feature list at the time of this writing.
