Probably because this was originally a Canon forum for many years.

i know that, got banned many moons ago because I wasn't supporting Canon and would dare to question their inferior sensors.

My Canon 1D Mk III is beloved, and I've had it since they were released. No noise banding like the 5D series or other consumer level Canon's, it's a super camera, but it's time to upgrade and the Sony's look great, especially for the price.

Would any of the Sony mirrorless work well for fast action stage photography? And how do they work with Canon lenses? Flashes? Triggers? (Yongnuo)

I came from a 1D Mk3 to an A6000 and i havent looked back, I shoot Motorsport and quite often performances on stage / in arena and my keeper rate has gone up a LOT.

I am thinking about making the same move and I really can't see any downsides. The flexibility with vintage lenses makes the move even more enticing.

I moved from a 5D2 to the a7 and a7s and won't be looking back. You'll probably get more responses in favor of the switch than not, and I'm one of them. But everyone's different and what might work for me might not work for you.

But some of things I love about the Sony mirrorless are:

1.) EVF. Some people say it's slow, it's not accurate, blah blah, but I LOVE it. You can truly see what you get: exposure, depth of field, even magnification. I used the Samyang 35mm on my 5D2 and loved it, but was also often frustrated with the mis-focus. Not anymore with the a7 and Focus Peaking.

2.) Weight. Yes, I can handle a FF DSLR if I wanted, but why do so when there's a better, lighter option that delivers more. I pair my bodies with the 24-70 F4 and can put that in my bag every time I go out.

3.) WiFi. Yeah, sometimes I do enjoy transferring photos to my phone so I can share it with my friends instantly.

4.) No need for micro-adjustments on my lenses anymore!

5.) And a lot of other stuff. high ISO of the a7s, the adaptability of different lenses, etc.

Agreed,
I love my a6K but if i had the money to have both my a6k AND my 1D3 would i? YES! the a6k is great BUT i miss how much of a solid camera the 1D is. I could litterally throw it arround and not worry. It's even been hit out of my hand by a car and survived. I dont think the a6K or A7 would cope with that.

I dont think this is supposed to be a photo sharing thread dude. Keep them in the a6k photos thread.
Thanks.
