Whats not to like: Interchangeable lens video camera in a much smaller package. Does both photos and videos well and easily. One camera to do it all reasonably well... Sounds great to me
Do you shoot video much? I mean have you shot video with a dedicated video camera? DSLR form factor is for still photos first.
I've been using the DSLR as a primary video camera for around 8 years now, it's my go to form factor since I started with photography. The Sony and GH5 is is great for run and gun without drawing the attention of a video camera. The IBIS combined with the camera strap allows for smooth interview shots that are hand held. Then I can rig it out for studio work when I need to, or fly it on a Ronin gimbal.
I'd love to have a 5D with IBIS and a decent codec, the 5D and 7D body feels like a natural extension of my hand. And a smaller rangefinder style camera would work well as a B camera and for low profile run and gun where attention is the last thing you need.
