FS700 or two FS100s?

The FS100 is now under half the price of an FS700.

I generally film live events and I used to use a wide static B-cam shot while tracking tighter with my A-cam but I hated matching different cameras.

Would any of you FS700 users have taken the two FS100 option?

Re: FS700 or two FS100s?

All depends on what you are shooting and what features are most important. I've managed without the ND filters, and don't (currently need 4K). The slow-mo would be nice to have, but not a deal breaker for me. I'm happy with the FS-100, but that is because it suits my typical projects (corporate shoots, talking heads, chalk-talks, live performances etc.)

I guess the dealbreaker for me is the performance of the LA-EA2 on both cameras
