The Sony FS7 II in 2020 - Review of an Industry Legend

It's 2020, and Sony's PWX-FS7 II is four years old. There are many newer cameras in the industry. But there are probably more FS7's in use than any other model of professional camera. This beast rules the industry - especially professional corporate production, music videos, wedding and everywhere Arri are too expensive, and DSLRs won't cut it. Thanks to channel sponsor Camerakit.ie for supplying all the gear used for this review https://camerakit.ie/ So does the FS7 II still have the chops for production? Is this a camera you should consider buying or renting? And whats using the camera like if (like us) you come from a DSLR / DSLM background?
