Thanks, I'd actually bought a Atomos Nija a while back. I returned it though. It was a fantastic device but all these extra pieces of equipment further complicated my workflow and little did I know 5dm2 wouldn't output 1080p.

I'm actually juggling two priorities (1) Top priority is workflow, I need less equipment that can do more. Right now I have a Chevy Tahoe full of equipment for my photo-shoots. I'm trying to downsize that. (2) I'm also a bit addicted to 14bit raw Magic Lantern files. The workflow is hell but I can really push the files in my editor.

I like the idea of the Swiss army knife of cameras. I do extensive video and photo work in my job. Currently my 5dm2 is behind the times. I make it work but takes me WAY more processing than a new camera would. I know I could get better cinema camera but really cannot handle all the equipment, I hire assistants to help whenever I can but many times I have to do the projects on my own.

I really want a compact mirror-less with some decent lenses. I currently have pro glass but probably will spring for Sigma or something else this time.

Kind of more than anybody needed to know. I really appreciate the help suggestions. I'm super surprised the industry hasn't come at more 10-bit options video yet. I feel rendering any higher than 1080p is all just hype. I think the extra pixels are wasted unless you plan on cropping the video. There is rumor more camera makers will move towards higher resolution video when I think more color information / Lossless codecs are what we need as professionals. I do have a 10bit display and calibration equipment. Was worth every cent, although about $1,300

Right now my plan is to wait on Sony a7s III and see if it supports 10-bit with some decent 60-fps options. If they don't then I'll get the Sony a7 III and settle with 8-bit video & possibly the Atomos as you mentioned.
