I just released a music video today (https://vimeo.com/232710394) that was shot on the a7sii+ Ninja Flame, with Zeiss Planar 50&85mm t1.4s and Rokinon 24&35mm t1.4s, in a variety of different lighting setups, and the major hitch in post that could have made things a lit easier is the GH5 10bit's ability to get around color banding. it's due to the 8bit and our lighting and was mostly fixable in post but it was frustrating enough that during the edit i actually started shopping for a GH5 so we could avoid it in future on shots with those lower light subtle grades- I dont think we shot anything where the low light itself would have edged the GH5 out, so at the end of the day it really comes down to what kind of images you want to make, the tone and emotion, because both cameras are very capable. It's hard to beat the price on the gh5, but that price difference starts to shrink the deeper into speedboosters and fast glass you need to go to make up the loss of usable stops. each can be pushed to do good work, it'll come down to personal style and workflow.
Thank you, that spare (empty -_-) 2bits = quadrupling the bit rate info was eye opening
