Is This Camera Worth My Time/ Money?

Long story short, I have two Rvision Dual i50's that have died. They are VERY expensive cameras, and my customer has stated they don't really care about the thermal stuff anyway. I was looking at this to replace these two cameras. Bear in mind this is a Mobotix environment and these would be recorded thru MxServer so my choices are limited to really Axis, Panasonic, Sony, and Merit Li Lin. The Merit seems to be the best value for money base on the feature set. These are water tower cameras so big zoom is a big deal.

Your thoughts? I need to give them two cameras for no more than 10K installed.
