Ea50 vs nx5u for wide shot

Filming a dance recital with 2 cameras I want to have a preset wide shot to cover the entire stage and one manned camera to follow the dancers. Does anyone have an idea which camera is best suited for which position?

Re: Ea50 vs nx5u for wide shot

The EA50 has a shallower depth of field so my choice would be EA50 full stage wide fixed and use NX5U for tracking. I use NX5U and once I set focus on stage do not bother again for the whole show as I can arrange for the whole stage to be within depth of field. You may end up refocusing a lot with the EA50 shallower depth of field.
