Yes, there are a lot of options out there, so it's a challenge to know what to do.


As for the 5D Mark III, they're marked down to $2699 at Amazon as well (as of this post).


But I agree with Noam. The 5D Magic Lantern hack is too much hassle. 


If you decide not to go with the RX10's smaller 1" sensor, I like your idea of getting the full-frame $1998 A7 for stills and the $995 BMPCC for video.


For about the same price as the 5D Mark III, you'll have both a high quality full frame still camera and a purpose-built ProRes + RAW cinema camera that is being used to produce some awesome professional work:


Chrissy DePauw Electronic Press Kit by Kofa (ProRes):




Barts Clothing Commercial by Whitemotion Pictures (RAW)




"The Case" – real estate video from Paper Crane (ProRes)




Hope this doesn't mess your plans up again!  Hope you're having a great holiday season,
