Canon 1DX mark ii : switch from sony?

Hello everybody,

I see more and more videos on youtube shot with a canon 1DX mark ii and i wonder if it is a good idea to buy one instead on my sony A7rII.

In fact, i see 4 possibilities :

  1. Keep my A7rii
  2. Sell my A7Rii and buy a 1DX mark ii (i saw a couple under 3000 €)
  3. Sell my A7Rii and buy a sony A7iii
  4. Wait for the A7sIII before deciding

So, the PROs for Sony (A7rii or A7iii) :

Stabilized sensor

Tilt screen


I already have sony lenses

CONs for Sony

I’m not 100% happy with the colors

PROs for 1DX

Colors SOOC

Dual AF

CONs for 1DX

Size and weight

File size !!!

I use my camera mainly for travels (50% video and 50% stills) and , since a couple of months, for my baby (9 months old )

Concerning the file size from the canon : what is your workflow ? You transcode the file to Prores and after finishing the edit, you delete the original files ?

What do you think ?

Thank you
