Best camera for 'Run and Gun' shooting?

Hey guys,

I have 4 camera options to choose from for an upcoming project. I don't have much experience with either of these 4 so i figured the Community could help me out.

Between:
- SONY PMW-EX3 XDCAM
- SONY PMW-200 XDCAM
- SONY PMW F3
- CANON 7D DSLR

what camera would you suggest for a 'run and gun' style project? If it helps, the project would primarily be shot in and around a forest.

It's a question of personal preference only. My preference, of those listed, is the Canon 7D. If you're shooting during daylight in a green forest - I prefer the Nikon glass so I'd go with a Nikon DSLR.
