Ooo.. $150 is very tempting.
Ima jump on the pre-order so I’ll have some time to shop around for some deals for now. Dam Sony glass is pricey.
How’d you like your transition from the 6D to Sony?
it took me a while to completely get used to sony, a solid year for the transition. I was an early adopter, having shot canon from models like the rebel XT, D60 (not to be confused with 60D!). I worked with very primitive sony's, however, by the time the A7 mark 2 came out, to me, the writing was on the wall. I could see that sony was serious about their lineup, and I banked on them. I jumped ship after a year of shooting both systems, even before they came out with really capable bodies, the user experience was simply better for me, I enjoyed the EVF greatly even though I have transitioned to mostly a rear screen shooter
approach with an open mind, you'll be shooting Sony, not canon, they do things differently. I dont consider it bad, just different. I even went as far as swapping out raw converters, went from lightroom to capture one...... extremely tough learning curve, but it's a raw converter made for sony and it works extremely well. At this point, you couldnt pay me to switch back, I'm simply not interested in the heavy systems of the past. I do occasional astro with the samyang 14/24 and cant say it's better than the 6D other than resolution, but when I'm not doing astro, the usability is just so much better. AF anywhere on your screen is just so nice. AF during video with a small fast 28/35/50mm is also real nice. Using a neck strap again is pretty nice too, it's not too heavy and cross body slings not needed. Having a bring everywhere setup is extremely nice, simply shove the A7x + 35 f2.8 in a minimalist bag that clips to my belt. I simply would not be able to do this with a DSLR, no amount of black magic can get a DLSR into a clippable bag like the lowepro ILC-50. When I'm not feeling like bringing a camera, I'll strap that on my belt just in case. Doesnt drag me down, takes up no space, hands always free. Should I change my mind, I've got a high quality 35mm on me.
