Journalism/documentary

Yet another recommendation plea, I'm afraid. I've recently moved over to jourmalism and documentary making, and this is somewhere my experience with cameras isn't too hot, mainly because there's a lot more movement involved, less time to set up focus, etc. Relying on DSLR is a bit of a no-no for a primary camera. Think, following street protests, and so on.

So, I'm looking for a camera UNDER £2000, preferably closer to £1000, which:
Is broadcast quality, so will have UHD capability at the minimum. 4K is preferable.
Has at least one XLR input.
Suitable for "run and gun" shooting.
Fast focussing.
Best low light capabilities in the price range.
Does NOT require interchangable lenses (more weight to be carrying around).
Can shoot in both 50p and 60p at 1080.

Thanks in advance,
Joel
 
Maybe look for a second-hand Panasonic DVX200 or Sony FS5.

Alternately, you could look for a second-hand A7sII and build up a kit that could stay on it permanently...

I did look for the Panasonic, but so far I haven't been able to find a second hand one for less than around 3000.
If I had the budget I'd like to pick up the JVC LS300, given is smaller lenses and size.
