Canon 5D mk iii vs Sony A7s
I have been shooting both video and stills with my canon 7D for the last 6 years and I am looking to upgrade my kit. I work both as a photographer and a videographer, so my initial thought was to get the 5D Mk III and use it with magic lantern to record video in raw. However, after researching a lot, I have seen that a many people are transitioning to the Sony A7s.
I am seduced by the smaller size of the A7s and the apparently simpler post-production process for video (smaller files that don't require conversion like raw) but I have always loved the look of Canon and I know it will also be great for stills. So it is proving very hard to make a decision!
Does someone have experience using both? Have you transitioned from one to another? Is one superior to the other?
