Yea I use it together with a 50mm F0.95 lens at every wedding now just for some creative shots, I think it's a great little camera and I prefer it to the 5D3 in a lot of aspects

You can find a recent rather controversial article I wrote here http://willchaophotogr​aphy.com …-for-wedding-photography/ (external link)

I've photographed a wedding with the a7II and I hated it.

I've now tried three of the best mirrorless cameras and I still find them to be quite awful to use.

I wouldn't use it as a primary camera, since the handling of these smaller bodies is still quite cumbersome

I wish they release an A99 sized mirrorless with proper controls such as joysticks and adequately spaced out buttons to avoid mispressing

Why? A7II and 5DIII aren't that different. I have no issues with my A7R either.

Would you care to elaborate? I thought the Sony mirrorless system was very good at video.....

Knowing what glass they used would also be useful.

I personally have not seen anyone shooting with an A7II yet, other than a few guests, but I have seen videographers with A7R bodies.
