The A7s isn't $599. The link you pointed to is a cage that fits around it. The A7s costs $2,500 without a lens. If you want to add 4k recording you need a $1,500 external recorder, putting it far more expensive than the Canon. Also, your iso numbers are arbitrary. The A7s goes to 409,000 iso which will look like hot garbage. Canon goes to 20,000, but what does that say. What is the usable ISO of each. Canon will likely look good all the way to 20,000, if A7s looks like dog crap after 20,000, they are essentially equal. Numbers don't always tell the story. And why compare the weight and size of two cameras when one doesn't have a lens attached. The one without the lens of course is going to be lighter. This comparison is full of misinformation and will not help someone make a buying decision.
