If pros say that the R5 isn't fit for video purpose, it isn't.

The A7s has been used for years in its various versions. The S1H remains the one to beat I reckon.

That is - if you are into toys. If my income would depend on it, I'd buy a Red Helium anyway ;-)
The only actual video pro I saw doing a video who used the camera as is, said he had no actual issues with either the A7S III or the R5, on actual video shoots.

The other video pro used the R5 all rigged up with HDMI out usage, where the R5 turned off the overheating protection, which I mentioned above.

The R5 appears to actually be fit for video, and especially suited for IBIS/IS and AF usage.

  There's a lot of waffle as it's a photography debate but .....
They keep repeating the same talking points. 
Thing is, you do not shoot 4K60 in normal production, only for slomo takes. R5 with 4K30 has no temperature related shooting limitations. 
Yes, it has the 29minutes and 59 seconds video duration limitation, and the A7S III does not.

Could the Sony running hotter there because the hot air out from the fan of Panasonic is aimed directly at the Sony, while it's between two hot cameras to begin with?

Edit: Saw that guy's second test. Sony definitely seems to be overheating more quickly under direct sunlight, which luckily can be avoided rather easily.
