I was looking into possible configurations for a future purchase. It seems that an Alexa (used with an ARRIRaw recorder) and some mid range primes like the Schneider Cine Xenar IIIs or the Cooke Mini S4s will cost about the same as a Sony F55 (with the AXS R5) with some Master Primes, Leica Summiluxes or Cooke S4/i primes. Any opinions as to which configuration I should be getting? Thanks.

If you're spending that kind of money you better know what the market wants where you are.
