Making the jump from a Canon DSLR to a Sony FS7 XDCAM Super 35 camera. The decision, budgeting, spousal drama. What on earth am I thinking?!

Here's one of the best all-around lenses for shooting video on a Canon DSLR. Includes tips and sample videos.

The a7 II will ship with 5-axis stabilization built-in. The result will be smoother, clearer shots. How will Canon and Nikon respond?
