Gimbal for A7r ii sigma 18-35mm CHOICES

Hello everyone,
I've had the ronin mx (putting it for sale) and I've hated it for it's horrendous size and weight. The pilot fly h2 kept failing on me, and the mounting plate always swivels to the right/left making the combo unbalanced. Even if it didn't, it can't remove all jitters/vibrations from the sony combo.
I have a few choices in mind and they are the following:
1- Zhiyun Crane 2 maximum payload 7lbs, seems pretty decent in features. Seems a little heavy, but the handle and what comes with the case is an almost complete kit for the capacity. Plus they're rumored to come out with a focus accessory to allow it to work on sony/panasonic 
2- Nebula 5100 Slant 45 degree, 7~8lbs capacity, but can it balance a sony a7r ii with sigma without the back end hitting the motors? Or should I go with a 5300 5-axis one, although the design of the 5300 means blocking the monitor of my camera and a heavier design. Not sure if the added handles actually stabilize the video feed further, from what I've seen there arent many reviews, and if there are any, they aren't with the combo I'd like to use (front heavy)
3- Came Tv prophet 8lbs capacity, but the design and app features all look very outdated and unprofessional to be honest. My friend has had a came tv gimbal prior and one of the batteries failed pretty quickly and the overall structure is rather childish looking.Not sure if I can trust their design?
4- Moza air. A cheaper alternative gimbal that might work with the mentioned combo, also comes with a 2 handed handle.
Any suggestions? for the price/features I've seen that the above mentioned are the best. Surely there are other gimbals with lower capacity but I've found them to struggle heavily, and I'd rather have a 1-handed gimbal due to the fact that the events I do here require movement and precision, usually more movement between crowd than a Ronin-MX can handle.

Sony Alpha a7R II
