Well my willpower didn't last, purchased my own Sony F3 with active EF adapter, rig, SD to SxS adapter,  v-mount power adapter, and 3 full size NP batteries for $800. The batteries and EF adapter are

I need that EF mount adapter now!

Goal is to buy nothing but lights this year. I have a great image maker already, and access to other cameras. I really just need to up my lighting skills and kit. I'll see if I can stick to it.

I've seen some testing done on the 18-35 and the conclusion was mounting it on the A73 it depended on the adapter used. Some adapters it was parfocal others it was slightly off. With a speedbooster you are able to adjust the glass to get it perfect, but thats not possible with most adapters.

Now if you have an URSA you can shim the mount to adjust it so its not a worry. Thats not an option on every camera.

Yeah, it seems the Cinematics lens may be good because it "just works". Which on-set with limited time, is valuable. Correct me if I'm wrong but even if you can use shims on an Ursa to get the regular Sigma lens just so, that's something you have to think about redoing if you want to change lenses.

Well, over the past week things have changed a lot, with two months of confirmed jobs cancelled and no idea what will happen for the rest of the year.

Look like my new camera owning plans for 2020 are to keep shooting on the FS700 + Shogun Inferno for another year.

Right, purchasing anything is all theoretical as of right now.
