From Canon to Sony

Hi all, as the title says - I have just switched from Canon to Sony. I have been with Canon for more than 15 years - my first Canon was an EOS-3, then I bought a EOS-10D waaay back in the early days of DSLR's. A 20D followed, then a 5D Mk.1, and my last camera was a 5D Mk.3. I have owned all sorts of glass - 17-40L, 24-70L, 50/1.4, 70-200/2.8L IS. The last glass I owned before selling up was a 50/1.2L, the legendary 85/1.2L, and the 100/2.8L Macro. All have been sold except for the Macro and the 5D3 (I still need these things until the new camera system is in place). 

 

I bought an A7S2 and a 35/1.4 Zeiss. I have taken it out for a few test shoots and I am ABSOLUTELY AMAZED by the performance of this combo! Until now I had been told that the A7S2 can see in the dark. No kidding, this camera sees things that I can't, and obtains focus even in near darkness. 

 

I left Canon behind because they seemed to be stuck in the dark ages. About the only reason to stay is because they have a better selection of glass. 

 

I am still finding my feet in the Sony system, and there are a few things that bug me. Over time I will ask some questions on the forum. Meanwhile, thank you for having me here.

Not at all. Way too big and too heavy. What really persuaded me to give up Canon was my recent trip to Europe. I did the whole thing with my 5D3, the 50/1.2L, and a 430EX flash. Despite deliberately packing the lightest kit I had in my possession, I still ended up with sore shoulders at the end of the day. It made me think about a lightweight, high quality solution - hence the Sony.

I also just swapped from Canon (60D, and similar L glass) for the same reasons, my cam was just too big and too bulky to bring everywhere with me so it sat in a bag in my closet. Only had my a6000 for a couple weeks but loving it so far.
