My Rokinon/Bower 24 1.4 and 85 1.4 are my go-to primes for video work. If the sharpness and IQ is anything like those lenses, at a price point below Canon's 135, I'd be seriously tempted.

Two things I noticed you did wrong. One was having IS on your lens turned on while it's mounted to a fluid head monopod. Having the IS on-on a stable platform will cause jerkiness. Second, your shutter speed should be 2x your fps. I.e. 24fps shutter speed 48, 30fps shutter speed 60.
Whether they like it or not, Canon DSLRs are no longer 1st, 2nd, 3rd or even 4th best performing enthusiast options for video. Nikon, Sony, Panasonic and Samsung are all significantly ahead, and if we count Blackmagic (they’re actually more pro than enthusiast) Canon are down to 6th. Just 2 years ago they were 1st. What happened?”
-First APS-C Canon without moire and aliasing, and with great low light performance, I really like that. The camera is also very nice in the audio features (headphone jack, ability to silently change levels whilst recording), Dual pixel AF with speed/sensitivity adjustment, 1080 slow motion, lack of distortion when using Canon lenses, Etc
Imagine how many photos you can lose at once with one of these!
... Options are a T3i/T4i, 60D, maybe a 5D2. 6D seems like an option;
