Forgive me for asking, Im not trying to be difficult. Im just trying to show you other options to help save weight. I work as a commercial photographer.
Where will you make use of the photos you take, will they be online, for an inkjet printer, magazine publication or larger publication?.

If online or for printing out of an inkjet printer up to A3 size then smaller lighter cameras such as a Sony Nex5n will do the job just as well as a dslr.

If using ecalc to work out what motors etc you do need to factor in the weight of your camera and gimbal.

I have a X8 configuration multirotor that is a little overspeced and can easily carry a 5d2. It weighs including 2 batteries, a camera and gimbal 5kg in total. I did have a hexa that weighed 2.3kg without camera and gimbal and had similar motors to what you are looking to use but only using 3s batteries and it couldnt lift a T3i.

The GH2 does a great job but is surprisingly very similar in weight to a T3i

I have a big DSLR and know the quality of the pictures this can make.
For filming a GH2 or similar DLT camera is also an option.
