Re: alternative to 320

I have been looking at large sensor cameras to shoot wildlife for quite some time now. I have been looking at the Canon C300 wondering if it makes sense to invest in a telephoto lens like the 70-200.

However my preferred choice of working would be to not swap lenses all the time, which seems to be what large sensor cameras are all about.

Just recently I have started thinking if the Sony F3 with the Sony servo lens might fit me better. Seems to have an acceptable range at both ends, useful for several tasks. I have come across a used Sony lens and now looking for a used Sony F3 to see if that could be economically viable.

I have a Sony FS100 which I am not sure what type of lenses to choose for it. I have the Metabones adapter and a Tokina 11-16 lens. Whatever lens I am looking at things quickly add up along with a rig with baseplate, follow focus, lenssupport and so on. Not sure if I want to drag several lenses with me. I have come across a battletested RED 18- 80 lens which might be a good alternative for allround use, but then I would have to buy a longer telephoto lens.

At the other end I think an EX3 or JVC HM750 could be a good choice for wildlife.

A friend of mine has an EX3 with one of the prime Nikon zoom lenses (max. focal length 300mm) and he's very satisfied with the results.
