It kind of depends what sort of work you are doing. If filming sports, you need a traditional video camera with a zoom control on your tripod handle.

If you are filming corporate, commercial, wedding, & events; Then a DSLR would work.

I don't really think DSLR's are cheaper after you add the Lenses. I would recommend a 24-70 L-Series Lens to start and build from there.

You can also buy DSLR's on Ebay and probably save money. Some people have upgraded to the MkIII and are selling their older MkII.

There are many traditional video cameras around 2 grand that would work great. The advantage is being able to monitor and record your sound directly to the camera.
