Matching NEX5N to Canon footage

Hey guys! At the moment I shoot weddings with a 6D and 5D2. Both of these are manned cameras, and I usually leave the NEX5N on sticks as safe shot. However, given the 1080p50 mode that the Canons lack, I would like to start incorporating it more into my workflow, especially for steadicam shots.

 

Up till now, I've been shooting in Portrait (creative style) at -3,0,-3. I just wanted to check if anyone of you is using it with Canon DSLRs and what settings work best to get the look as close as possible? I'm shooting in Neutral Flat on the Canons.

The NEX-5n's AVCHD codec responds poorly to grading, especially at high ISO's, so I don't use portrait because it bleaches color and raises shadow noise.  Plus it is very prone to macroblocking and color banding.  I just shoot Standard and dial down sharpness only.

 

I would then try to match the graded Canon shots in post by tweaking the Standard image.
