I have an Hmc40 and in decent light it is excellent. Rather than investing in a 35mm adapter, I would pair it with a Gh2 body (which I also have) and a cheap, fast legacy lens or two off EBay.
Hmc40+GH2 intercut well and in combination are very, very flexible.

A used GH1 body would also work well and you can pick them up at less of a price than the GH2 ..most are hackable too!!! The footage works well with the HMC80 as well as it has the same "internals" as the HMC40.

I went with the HMC40 and shot my little indie feature with it. Had a great time, and it's not such a bad little camera after all. Trailer here:

Shane , First the HMC40 with proper lighting will bring your images to a very large screen, I have seen mine on a 92" screen and you can touch the image, I'm sure it will fit any size.
Second, I found a great companion for those shots when shallow DF, or very low light capture is required a DSLR camera works fine, just watch aliasing and Moire , the HMC40 will not give you aliasing and Moire.

Hello Felipe, It was the first project I ever tried lighting. I shot, lit, made coffee, script supervised, directed, made props, for lol. I used a JTL 500w light kit (3 lights with stands) and 4 home-depot style tin-clamp lights (5.00 each) that I rigged up on the ceilings of the main location and just let them hang the entire shoot. I've watched it on a 52" screen. Looked great! The outside shots with this camera blew me away... Just natural daylight - Stunning images.
