Anyone heard the Sanken CMS-50 or CSS-50?

Sanken has released the new CMS-50, which is a mid side mic intended for on-camera use. The mid capsule is what they call a “cardioid shotgun”. I’m not sure what to make of that. It outputs the raw mid and side signals. I’m thinking about using this on my new Sony A1 rig. I’m hoping to use this setup form behind the scenes video while recording our next album. For example, imagine walking into the studio during rehearsals. You could capture the stereo ambiance, the sound field all the way to mono in post. Anyway…thought I’d ask if anyone had heard one of these. The CSS-50 is also m/s, it with a built-in matrix. It cannot output raw mid side, so isn’t really going to work for my purpose. It’s also about twice as long.
