The C100 looks like a great call. My only hesitation is no 60fps 1080p. Is it worth the extra couple grand for the MK II? That's my question.
I'm considering that combo.. C100 MK II with Ninja. You would recommend it?
It's tough to see the FS7 priced so fairly compared to Canon products. Not sure I can commit to Sony as I have never loved their cameras.
This is something I'm battling with too. I really don't think there is ever a "right" answer when it comes to purchases like this. At this point, I'm trying to sell all of my gear (except for my Zeiss EF glass), and then see where the market is.
As much as I would love buying a C100 MK II, it might make sense to wait for NAB to pass in April and see what happens (new releases, price drops). In the meantime, I am going to be renting. This, of course, assumes that the project will have room for renting gear in the budget. Just another route to consider before buying a new camera.
I don't have any listed publicly. Here is a list of the gear:
2x Panasonic Battery Chargers
4x Panasonic Lithium-ion Battery
Panasonic Battery Grip
Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f/0.95
Voigtlander Nokton 10.5mm f/0.95
Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6
Panasonic Lumix G 14mm f/2.5 ASPH Lens

Hey man, I am selling my two GH3s along with some lenses. Sounds like that may be of interest to you. It's a great little camera.
Yikes..that's crazy. Nice detective work. I'm in the midst of reinvesting in a new camera system. While I'd love to go with a C100 MK II (or better yet, a C300 MK II), the prices are just outrageous compared to the Sony FS7. I keep reading about Canon "color science", but with such high prices, I don't care how good the color science is. Sony is offering better options at more competitive prices. Seems like an obvious choice.
