As I understand, the 70D and 7D2 have pretty smooth autofocus, with the 70D having the advantage of touchscreen.

I will tell you that you will definately be able to tell the difference between the video shot from the 1/3 sensor on the panasonic and the APS-C sensor on the DSLR. That is a pretty drastic difference. I have a friend who does this for a living and says he has a hard time mixing m4/3 and APS-C video depending on the situation.

Either commit to shooting with a DSLR (or a large sensor rig like the ASP-C nex camcorders), or go for smaller sensors. There are several here who have found it pretty easy to set up a DSLR as a Shoulder mounted ENG rig. As for a handheld ENG, that might take some getting used to.

just purchased a 5d mark III....in my reviewing to make my purchase "video" was a prime concern for me. After about 2 months of research one thing I am glad that I did find AND utilize was knowing whatever lens I get it needs or should have IS. After doing some filming with and without the IS it was very obvious that I made the right decision. Have tried filming with my 50 f/1.4...nice video ability but it doesn't carry a candle to my canon 24-105 f/4 IS insofar as stability is concerned. The only thing that would supersede the IS is a type of tripod or even a monopod.

One thing to remember...this is my "approach" to the filming thing. I am an ole man with weak arms....lol

good luck...

In regards to IS on a lens, this is from my friend who does videography for a living.

--The only time you should use a lens without IS is on a very stable tripod or with a Steadycam setup.

The 24-105 does seem to be a favorite among video people.
