Question - DSLR Motorised Gimbals

I am in the market for a gimbal that will support my Cannon 80D and wondered if any of you on here has one or could shed some light on decent brands?
I have currently got my eye on the Zhiyun crane 2 if anyone has any hands on experience with that would you recommend it?

I have a Crane 2, suits the 80d and will happily support a variety of L quality (weight) lenses.

I bought really for my trip to Japan and doing a few promotional videos for my business but apart from a couple of tests and a little b-roll I've not used it much.

The Zhiyun crane 2 is an excellent gimbal but it can be a bit pricey. A quick Google would suggest that the Canon 80d is around 1.61 lb without a lens attached meaning the Zhiyun crane v2's (v2, not just 2) max payload of around 3.9 lb should be able to support your 80d and a decent lens while also being around 60% of the price of the newer Zhiyun crane 2.
