DJI Ronin-M vs CAME-TV MINI 2?

Hi guys!

I'm looking into getting a 3 axis gimbal for a while now and I have narrowed it down between the DJI Ronin-M and the CAME-TV MINI 2.

I was wondering if anyone owns any of these rigs or can give me any advice on which to get and why?

I am currently using a Sony A7S with a Rokinon/Samyang 35mm cine prime lens and an 85mm prime. I would like to know which gimbal would be better for this camera setup.

Finally, in the future I would probably be looking to add a wireless follow focus system (doesn't have to be wireless, if that's possible?) to the gimbal, so if anyone could give me advice on which of these gimbals allows a follow focus system that would be much appreciated!

Many thanks,
Callum

I have a DJI Ronin-M and I love it. It's quick and easy to set up. I can have it balanced and auto tuned within 5 minutes and the battery life is insane. Still haven't gotten past the half way point between my shoots. I've used gimbals that aren't tool-less like the CAME gimbals and it's so much harder especially the tuning which can take up to an hour after swapping a lens. DJI Ronin-M, so worth the $1400.

i personally like the movi. It's light, it's reliable, and it's a US company so their customer service is good. They get back to you in a day. VS my experience with DJI is things takes 1-2 months to get serviced.
you can find a used m5 around on ebay for about that price. also many of the the great operators and techs are very familiar with it.
