More like a legit 4k cam. Lenses, cage, and gimbal are all necessary and $$$ extras but still a legit camera. There are a ton of reviews on youtube.

It's a 4k cinema camera capable of recording their own flavor of compressed raw and prores (not raw) to SD cards, CF cards or USB-C drives. Blackmagic makes the industry standard color grading software Resolve, and make a lot of affordable pro cameras.

Battery life is bad (though better after firmware update). Autofocus is barely there.

It is capable of capturing a fantastic image, but it is a cinema camera. It's expected that you'll outfit it with a monitor, external power, second system sound and have a dedicated focus puller (or never use it for moving subjects).

Well, isn't that the case for all rigs? i.e. "you need a rig", by definition.
The camera is just the "engine", you need to assemble the vehicle around it.

Many current-gen mirrorless cameras have in-body and lens stabilization, good enough autofocus, high-bitrate internal log recording, long lasting batteries and adjustable screens, which makes them usable in a variety of situations without having to build a rig around them.

No doubt. For vlogging and stuff tho. I think Black Magic's target group is past that level

I love how my EOS R focuses, but I would not blame anyone being paid to shoot something focus pulling manually with a rig. Even more-so with most other MILC offerings, most of which are praised being easy to supply power to externally instead of having to take things apart or unmount tripods etc to be swapping batteries.
