Just because...

a used sony A7 with a 35mm lens may be just the ticket. or a 6D with the same, used.

Actually I am advising against the 7D and wanted to know what other model to get for her interests. Weight should be light but photo quality high?



What are your reasons for advising against the 7D? It may be an 'old' model, but in its day it was a very fine camera. Compared to a current model,

  • It does not have the resolution of today's cameras
  • it is not as 'noise' free as today's cameras
  • it does not have as high of ISO settings as today's camera
  • it does not have as good of AF (fast acting, even in low light)



...but only the first one affects a landscape shooter, the rest only affect sports/action/nighttim​e and indoors shooters

So why are you biased against the 7D for her, if she is just getting interested (and may lose interest--our youngest lost interest in spite of saying she was interested to learn more!) If your bias is the weight, even going mirrorless does not truly save weight compared to the same-size-sensor dSLR when you have mounted the same FL lens on it (we're ignoring the very small 'pancake' lenses here, on the point of size/weight)

A 10-22 on a crop will give a wider field of view at the wide end as a 18-xxx on a FF.

...crop arithmetic using 1.6 factor would show that 10mm on APS-C body = 16mm on FF body

Hmm, Wilt's post up above got me to thinking. It might be a good time for the OP to upgrade and "hand-me-down" the 7D to his daughter. Just thinking.... ;-)a

The adapters are like tubes, no optics inside, just air so no change in IQ.

Well yes, of course; rather obvious - totally understand.
What I was asking about is whether the effects/dynamics/FOV of tilt/shift lenses are changed at all by adding that thin bit of space between the lens and the body/sensor.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

Good thinkin'! My wife will be OK with me giving my 6D to my grandson so I can get myself a 5D4, right?

EDIT:
Then, a week later, I'll have upgrade my 80D to 7D2. Similar controls and all that...

The adapter just moves the lens to where it should be on a non-mirrorless body so the distances are the same between the mirrorless and non.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Well, for what she has stated as primary photographic goals, medium format will provide much better results than 35mm full frame. She can get the Pentax 645Z, 45mm f/2.8, or 35mm f/3.5 for just under $9,000.

Perhaps we need a working budget in order to make useful suggestions.

LOL Tom.....

Whatever you get, you will be creating very large files which will need to reside somewhere. Budget accordingly.
