Canon 5d vs Sony fs100

Hello,

I'm thinking about buying a new camera, but i can't decide between the canon 5d and the sony fs100.
I've been watching a lot of fs100 videos and honestly they don't have that cinematic look (dof) like a 5d has. I read they have the same size sensor. But 5d in my opinion looks better. How is that possible?

(FS100 is a winner in the build quality qua operating)

Kind regards,
Vader

Sorry, but the 5D doesn't have a cinematic look – it goes considerably beyond that with it's 35mm photographic sensor. Have a look at this:

The FS100 has a S-35 cinema sensor – exactly the size of a 35mm frame as presented in theaters all over the world with the same DOF characteristics.

If you like to constantly fight with focus, a crappy LCD, aliasing, moiré and a poor audio section, get a 5D. (If you want to shoot excellent photos, get a 5D too)

But if you want to make films, get the FS100 if you can't afford the F3!

I am in the same dilemma. What to do ?!!!!!!!! I really want to get a Sony Nex-fs100 but it is so expensive. One thing I've noticed is that the FS100 is straight up, a movie camera. I don't think it can take still pictures, such as the dual role of the 5D. I thought about the 5D, but the knowing the fact that a Mark III will be out soon will irk me everyday.

A good cheaper option due out soon would be the Sony A77 and VG20.

Another solution that doubles for film and photography would be the Panny GH2 – especially now that it was hacked by Vasilij Kiselev.

I wonder what camera did you buy? fs100 or 5D. I'm at the same situation and can not decide.
