So high-end movie camera makers (Arri, etc...) without a mirroless line should be worried?
When you reach a given level, you switch to the product(s) delivering you what you need, regardless of the brand - and many brands you're going to use don't care about the consumer market.
I don't think you get it what I'm saying. Young DPs start out with low end equipment like A7SIIs and GH5s. Then they graduate to FS7s, and maybe one day, a CineAlta. MILCs are not replacements for serious cinema cameras nor are meant to be. But it's important to get people in the ecosystem. I'd wager someone who has used an A7S and then an FS7 is more likely to use a CineAlta than a Canon. Of course, ARRI has the corner on the market for now and we'll see if Sony FF or Canon FF can make a dent.
