I guess it can't use the XDCA back that allows the FS7 to use V-lock batteries and take TC and genlock?   I didn't see any mention of it on the FS5 site, so I guess as far we we're concerned it's a fancy DSLR....

Correct. That accessory cannot be used with the FS5. So no TC in (or genlock), unless you want to record LTC to one of the audio channels, e.g., with a Tentacle.

While it's true that it will only internally record 4:2:0 8-bit in "4K" (technically, QFHD, not true 4K), you can record 4:2:2 8-bit out the HDMI port into, say, a Video Devices PIX-E recorder or an Atomos Shogun. But, 10-bit 4K sure would have been nice.

All the same, I like mine a lot. Just don't assume it's a cinema camera, and you'll get along fine.
