A bit overcooked

how do you like the A7ii in relation to your 6d?

I do like the smaller form factor and portability. The ability to play with vintage lens is fun. But after the cool factor wore off, I would be happy shooting with either camera. :) I personally do like EVF, the ability to see what your final image would be like before you pressed the shutter button is very helpful. Altho, timing on sport scene or BIF is harder due to some lag delay. Pairing large lenses with the a7ii seems a bit unbalance for me, which I rather use those larger lenses on my 6D for the form factor.

do you feel like the ergonomics just arent there? maybe im just too used to the 6D body's size and comfort, but when i went to play with a A7II at a best buy, i found that my hand was not comfortable, my pinky was just hanging off, and the dials werent easily reached when the camera was up to my eye. maybe a part of the discomfort was due to the anti-theft bracket around the lens mount, but the grip itself wasnt that great

I had the same exact issue with the A7II (pinky hanging off) and I don't even have big hands. I ended up getting a Meike grip and this has completely solved everything and I couldn't be happier. I also come from a Canon background and honestly couldn't imagine coming back.

cool, thanks. but doesnt that detract from the "compactness" of the sony system

I had the same issue, but using the L bracket kinda bulk up the body a bit, and eliminate the problem somewhat.

it certainly does and at the same time, many dont switch solely for the smallness. You've got the EVF (with many advantages and some disadvantages), AF, Eye AF, IBIS on every lens, and ability to not only adapt canon lenses, but to use them with high accuracy AF as well as still being able to use the sony collection of lenses.

I would highly recommend going the L bracket route if you want that extra bit in size, and it gives you functionality as well. Cheap ones are like $20 on ebay/amazon.

interesting, never would've considered an L bracket as a "grip"

what about general ergonomics of the body? i def felt like it lacked the feel of a dslr, with controlling the dials when the camera was at the eye

I only felt this before I had my grip. I do agree with your last post saying that it took away from the compactness of the Sony but that's not the reason why I bought it. Of course, having it be lighter/smaller than my DSLR was an awesome feature but for me that was never the MAIN feature. I honestly don't know how someone can use a large lens on an A7 with no grip and have it be comfortable. It's very awkward feeling.

The L grip on the A7r/A7rii can come in a few varieties, but I like the version that wraps around the whole bottom. Unlike DSLR L brackets, the A7x version adds to the grip. I dont see any problem in size of the L bracket, either way when I shoot DSLR or not, I'de use an L bracket.
