I've contemplated the thought of dropping Canon for Sony on more occasions necessary ( weight / size ) and have yet to take to plunge. I have a a6000 i toy with here/there and enjoy very much, but I'm so heavily invested in Canon that I feel I'd be losing more than I want at this time. Even keeping my lenses and just dumping the bodies, I have yet to see/read anyone who use ONLY adapted lenses on their Sony Body to help with my decision making.

Most of us transition to native glass eventually. Partly because a lot of the native glass is really good, but partly because adapted AF involves compromises. I'd say with the a7rIII, unless you're shooting really long focal lengths or need fast FPS, there's less need to use native glass these days.

So 2 weeks ago I decided to jump ship and move from Canon to Sony, going from a 5DmkII to the a7Riii. It's a huge leap in technology and I'm loving the image quality. However, I shoot real estate and oftentimes exposure bracket for simplicity. It's great coming from Canon and the 3-shot AEB to Sony and 3,5 or 9 but I wish they had 7; I find I'm scrapping at least 2 frames if I go 9 shots. NBD, this thing is rated for 500k actuations but it's still a pain.

My BIGGER issue is the enormous RAW files; is there not any way to shoot RAW in a smaller file size?!? My 5DmkII, a 10 year old body, allowed for RAW and sRAW and I believe the 5DmkIV has sRAW and mRAW options. It's killing my workflow trying to deal with these huge files! You have options for JPEG file size, why the heck wouldn't you do the same for RAW?

I’m not sure if it’s the same on the Riii, but the Rii has a compressed and uncompressed Raw setting in the menu. I find that compressed is about 40mb and uncompressed is close to couple that. May me worth checking which mode you’re in. When I first moved over I was using uncompressed but quickly found that compressed was just as good

Yes, the Riii has compressed and uncompressed RAW but even at the compressed setting when I'm building a stack of blended images from 5-7 individual photos the file sizes come in a 200-300 MB each. I just can't imagine why there wouldn't be an option to shoot smaller RAW files

:eek: 200-300MB from 42MPixels, vs. my camera's 20-30MB (25MB mean) file sizes for 20MPixel RAW images

oh, STACKED!
