A C100 with the new touchscreen autofocus and a 100mb 4k implementation would have been fine for me. I will seriously look at the Fs5 and A7sii.
The c200 is overkill for weddingshooters especially when you need 3 of them, here the c200 is almost double the price (over 9000euro) of the c100 when it first came out, the fs7 mark I is currently cheaper and the fs5 can be had for 6000euro.

It's not for what you describe, it's for those special moments you feel that you want to make look extra special. That's what the raw option is for.

Why do you need 4K could also be easily asked. You're making it work in 1080 now, the C100 I and II are much cheaper, 4K will quadruple your storage requirements and at least double your rendering time. If you're so concerned about the extra cost of the C200, are you even ready to work in 4K?

CVP is showing it for 8,151 euro. It was at least 5299 euro when the C100 debuted.

Re: C100 mk3 and the 6D mk2

Thing is, there is a demand for 4K from some clients. However none are asking for RAW. I get that there are some moments where RAW would be nice. It's a nice little feature, but still overkill for 99% of event shooting needs. A robust 10 bit 4:2:2 code is just as ideal for those special moments and whilst I get others interest in RAW, it's not a feature I'm crying out for. I'm still working my way into 10 bit 4:2:2.

I must admit being torn between the C200, the EVA1 and the Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro for my big purchase next year. Each have their strengths and weaknesses.

Raw is not a delivery format for weddingclients, it's something you can use in your own advantage if you really need the dynamic range or if you do extensive colorgrading, for the c200's new price of over 9000euro I could get a jvc ls300 with a speedbooster and a complete set of prime lenses and a gh5.

If you charge a very high price for weddings I can understand if you want a c200 but otherwise it's a waste of money.
