FS5 w/Raw or FS7

With the addition of the RAW capabilities and 120fps in 4k for the fs5, finding it difficult to chose between the two. 8 bit is fine for daily work, corporate gigs etc and one can easily go to raw or Pro-res at demanding situations like AD's etc. plus there is the size which helps one save in gimbal cost and the weight, battery, clear zoom, ND etc.
Reason why I should still look at the FS7 anyone? FS7 with external unit plus recorder is out of my budget.
I do a mixture of corporate gigs, Ads for the web, local tv ads, occasional music vids etc. A lot of it is in available light but not something which would merit an A7s like low light monster.
Would really like to hear an argument for or against this.
Thanks.

You anwsered your own question: you like that FS5 is small.
FS7 is out of budget.

Problem solved!

I am in the exact situation as yourself and made the purchase on the Fs5 a week ago. Used it for one corporate gig so far and the results were outstanding. People bash the camera but it really is great once you master it.
