It really depends on both your budget and what you intend to do with the footage. Your thread says you’re looking for a pro camera, but you’re talking about consumer grade rigs. If you are serious about a real prosumer or mid-level pro camera, watch the ‘Shootout’ video on the ‘Advanced Info’ thread. The discussion in the video will give you a good idea of where you are skill wise and the possibilities for camera work beyond the consumer level.
