and the ability to zoom in while maintaining focus is essential – as is a size and balance that allows use on a tripod without droop. My sports work also involves all the usual audio inputs too. Rolling shutter, oddly, I've not found a serious issue with what I do. Controls that allow you to turn a knob for speed are also much more easy to use than menu up and downs for everything – one knob for shutter, one knob for ND filters, that kind of thing – very handy for me.
