Andrew.

All very good points, I was thinking purely along the lines of picture matching but off course its not just the pictures.

The weight is a real problem, I’ve just come of the phone to a friend whose bought an FX9 and thinking about buying an FX6 as a second camera and I was saying just how insanely light it is. We were trying to balance one on a Ronin S with a Sony 24 - 105.  Combined weight is well within the limits of the FX6 payload but the body is so light it would’n’t balance.

5. In this case, putting professional anamorphic lenses on a lightweight camera essentially means mounting the lens to the Steadicam rig, and the camera to the lens.
Which is a lot of fun for quick lens changes ...

Also, small cameras can actually be too light.
To get a full-size rig working properly, I would be adding a weight plate to an A7S/FX3.
