    Yep, not getting a C70, we like full sized XLRs, SDI output and Cinema RAW Light too much, plus I don't think a C70 would match with our two other cams. Better sensor
    but already have a C200 and a C300 MKII, have been looking for a deal on a used, clean, relatively low hour C200 as a second one or if I find a two pack for a deal, I would
    buy two of them. We did two shoots this year with 3-6 C200s for live streaming and with the CN E 18-80s, was really happy with
    how they looked on our client's live stream and I get a bump and make more profit selling the C200 than my X-T3 packages.

    So far, seeing $4,300.00-ish on Ebay, looking for that fire sale seller who "needs money now". Checked LensAuthority with their 15% off coupon but no
    C200s for sale. if I can find one or two under $4k in good shape, I will likely buy.

    If you see or hear of any deals, post them up or PM me!

    Hey PD,

    Sorry I'm not selling one, but Im thinking of the C200 /EOSR combo for when I upgrade from C100mk1/80D before EOFY next year. I also don't like the form factor of the C70 and Im afraid that form factor is gone, and the low end with all be c70 sizes and the high end will be C300mk3 and C500 only.

    I know you and a few other shooters have had issues with the 17-55 2.8 EFS at the wide end on the C200, what are the alternatives here to fit with my 70-200 2.8is Canon and 11-16 Tokina? Do I have to add in a whole other lens (16-35 and 24-70) thats very expensive, also no IS on the f2.8 versions of EF.... appreciate your thoughts.

    BTW Are you on "Broadcast Gear for Sale" on fb? That might be a good group to join.

    Now is an excellent time to pick up used S35 cameras! So many going cheap.

    I'll check that out, I've been ignoring Facebook for 2020 but I might be on that already. My alternative to the EF S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS is now the CN E 18-80mm t/4.4,
    although 18mm on S35 isn't very wide, really loving this lens, it is so much better than the EF S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS.
    But the CN E, even used is still $3k to $4k and it's definitely big and heavy compared to still lenses.
    Maybe the Sigma ART 18-35mm f/1.8?

    Even though, I have bought the CNE, I also still carry my Canon still prime package to every shoot, EF 28mm f/1.8, EF 50mm f/1.8 STM, EF 85mm f/1.8
    I shot a nice outdoor testimonial the other day with the 85mm f/1.8 and used the 50mm f/1.8 STM the week before for a sit down interview. Even though
    I have plenty of zooms, I still prefer primes, when I can. Smaller, lighter, cheaper, faster, sharper. Zooms suck in comparison but they are a lot handier and more flexible.

    It shouldn't be hard to find a nice C200 well under $4000 on ebay. At least 7 sold in the last few days well under that price with one just above $3000, all with original box, claiming excellent condition. Only one listed the hours.

    Just wanted to give everyone an update. It turns out my pre-order from B&H hasn't shipped yet. I just assumed it was when I got a shipping notification but I had forgotten about some back ordered softboxes I had ordered a month ago.

    Hopefully next week.

    Was that a C200B or a C200 for just above $3k?
