Camera Under $3000

I am planning to get a new camera. My budget is about $3000. I already own a few of Canon lenses and an Atomos Ninja Assassin. I am considering a BMCC 2.5K or Sony a7s II. I shoot mostly promo, Mountain biking, skatebaording and profile videos for athletes. A little concern about rolling shutter.

So any recommendation would be helpful.

PS- Cameras are way more expensive in my country (Ex- BMCC 2.5k is $2900). I'll buying mine from somewhere else.

The BMCC is not particularly the ideal camera for biking and skateboarding scenes.

I would consider the Sony or the new Panasonic GH5. Especially the GH5 as it has in body image stabilization.

A prosumer-grade video camera will be better suited for your needs than any DSLR style camera. Less rolling shutter, less alias/moire, easier handling. Sony and Canon have several decent options in your price range, just be sure to look for "professional video" cameras.
