Need opinion on switching to Sony A7s II from Canon 5D Mk.III
So currently, I own Canon 5D Mk.III, beast of a camera but as it's dated it has weaknesses. And I was looking forward to Mk.IV but it's very disappointing, which as most film makers can agree on. So now I'm looking at alternative upgrades. My "ultimate" film camera is the FS7 as of now, so for me it made sense to go in a Sony route, and I always heard great things about Sony A7s II, so I'm sure if I were to do an upgrade I'd want to change to Sony, as I was planning to make the change in the future anyway.
Only thing that concerns me in the lenses. Currently I own Canon 24-105 f/4, Canon 50mm f/1.4, Rokinon 14mm f/2.8, and Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8. So I'd have to get an metabone AF adapter as I do photography for church events time to time, which is another $400. Or sell my lenses and start converting to Sony lenses which seems pretty expensive than the Canon lenses, and I'm a student film maker who's currently working at a broadcast studio and doing freelancing as well, so I'm on a pretty tight budget. I'd have to make the changes slowly.
What advice can you guys give me? Should I make the change? and if I do, what should I do with my lenses? Keep them and use adapter or sell it and slowly purchase Sony E-Mount lenses?
