What's the best new camera addition to a 5D Mark II/7D combo, based on intercut-ability, color/look matching, future investment: GH4? A7s? 5D Mark III?
Looking to upgrade to a new camera.
I'm not one to chase what's hot, new and trendy. In fact, I still use a 5D Mark II/7D combo as my A/B Cam (respectively). So based on my situation, if you were looking to pick up one new camera - primarily for short doc use - and wanted to keep at least the 5D Mark II in the mix as a BCam, what newer camera would you pick up right now? The GH4? A7s? 5D?
My main concerns are: being able to match the new camera's look with the 5D Mark II, work flow (I'm a one-man band), the long-term value of any new camera I invest in, and the degree of 4K future-proofing I can attain with this purchase. Additionally, all my lenses (100mm Macro 2.8 L, 80-200mm 2.8 L, 24-105mm 4 L, Rokinon 35mm 1.4, Tokina 11-16mm 2.8) are Canon mounts.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
