If it is for strictly reel capture, not sure if it is worth blowing $4,000 (when the smoke clears) but if you have other production uses for higher bitrate capture or alternative format capture from what the camera's internals are doing then it would be worth while.
And of course wait till IBC is over. There may be some new product announcements in the external recorder market. My hunch is there will be more external recorders on the market in both the lower end of the market and the other tiers... now that the genie is out of the bottle on this.
I will say though, a huge benefit of the nanoFlash to Steadicam Ops is the weight and size. It is less than a pound and the footprint is small. A little industrial velcro, a couple of cables and you are set.

It is the best device I have found for HD so far. I am sure more stuff will be coming out by next NAB that will be as good, better, and/or cheaper however overall I am happy with the nanoFlash. They as a company have responded well to advice and requests and consistently do firmware updates on line. They have made owning one very easy.
