A7s mark II and rolling shutter ?
Alright guys, so the A7s II is now in stocks. I'm very impressed by this camera's performances for the price and I'm just about to empty my bank account before christmas. The only thing that I'm still scared of and that numbers can't (yet) provide an answer to is the rolling shutter. I'm a big fan of action sports and it's going to be a great part of what I film with it, for example quite fast Glidecam shots of freestyle skiers hitting jumps (with a Canon 16-35mm). So all this rolling shutter mayhem on the first version of the A7s has gotten me pretty anxious knowing that the sensor is apparently still the same on the mark II, so my question(s) is(are): should I be worried about it ? Is the 5 axis sensor stabilisation going to help it ? Is fixing it in post (Premiere Pro) easy enough ? Or should I just buy a used FS700 ?

Sorry for all those fears and questions but it tickles me !
Have a great day !
