I very much prefer shooting with a dslr. I love the handling better. the feel, the more comfort layouts and ergonomics, quicker to access and change settings, and the build.

with that said, at the end, having a smaller and lighter setup wins for me. it's easier and less hassle to bring a smaller setup on a simple outing and on trips. although getting a 2.8 zoom/bigger lens kind of ruins the purpose of having a lighter and smaller set up, it is still lighter compared to a dslr because of the body differences. I would say if you only use big lens, stick with a dslr for better and more balanced handling, but MedicineMan on here might say something different :P

I keep wondering about getting a dslr and still do. I ended up getting a new mirrorless because it fits my needs better. the other option would have been the nikon d850. I do own a 70-200 2.8 for the sony now and I dont need it all the time so it's not a big bother to me. prior to that, i have the 35 2.8, 55 1.8 and 24-70 f4 which are small and light and I make it work for me. I only got the 70-200 recently for a friends wedding where he asked me to be the main shooter. i bought it instead of renting because I will need it again in the future and it's good for events/stage performance that I sometimes shoot for the joy of taking pictures.

If I was to get a dslr again, it will be because I have the money to have both systems. 1d body with a 70-200 2.8 ii has always been my dream combo. in reality, i want something small and light to bring along with me at ease. I'm able to take them with me more often than I did when I had a dslr setup. an example, with the dslr i only wanted to bring one lens. with mirrorless im able to bring 2-3 lens.

i stopped thinking about sony FE lens being more expensive. they have proven to be good lens and I will suck it up to buy the lens I need and want. one of the issue's with mirrorless was af speed but it seems to be on par with the a9 and a7r3.

Hope my thoughts give you some sort of help.

Ive seen a few members going back to dslr and is very happy with their decision.

I was a long time Canon shooter and have been fortunate to shoot a pretty extensive list of Canon digital bodies including a number of 1 series bodies. I purchased my first Sony body when the NEX7 was release primarily because I was curious about what all the hoopla was about at that time and given that Metabones had just release a Canon to Sony adapter it made it really easy to use my Canon glass on the Sony. My hope was always that Canon would introduce their own mirrorless sytem in the near future and I could always swing back to Canon if I ever wanted to.

I upgraded from the NEX7 to the A7R and then later to the A7R2 and I haven't looked back on Canon. I still have a large number of Canon mount lens, primarily Zeiss ZE mount lenses that I really like, but with the exception of the 24TSII and 85L !.2 V2 I've sold all my Canon L glass and have been replacing it with either native FE mount glass or with adapted M mount lenses.

I find the shooting experience with the Sony mirrorless system so much more enjoyable, the flexibility of the system is unbelieveable, I can easily mount a Leica or Zeiss M mount lens for pure portability as I can adapt a large Canon mount telephoto should I require iti. The ability to adapt just about any lens out there has brought another level of enjoyment to this hobby for me that I never experience when I was using Canon.

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I originally went over to Sony when i stopped shooting weddings and didn't need all the canon gear that i had in bags and wanted to try them out and see what all the hype was about. I do enjoy the size of the a7ii and it is nice to have a smaller body, but honestly, i am not one to walk around with a camera often as far as street photography or anything like that is concerned. 90% of my shooting is automotive shoots where i just put my bag in the car and go out with a tripod or freehand and shoot my car, clients or friends and then head home. The other 10% is generally landscape stuff when i am camping and for that, i just carry my backpack with the body and a lens or two and walk back to my camper.

At one point, i was hiking with my 5d3 and some L glass and thought, damn this thing is heavy on my back and that was around the same time i thought about changing over to sony. The light weight set ups are nice for situations like that for sure.

I am not sure if i am against adapting a lens moreover that i am uneducated on the subject and unsure of what adapter to get and what features i would lose (if any). I see people adapting lenses all the time and then i see others that refuse to do it. So i am stuck somewhere in the middle trying to figure out heads or tails of the subject.

Currently my bag is pretty minimal with native sony lenses. 50 1.8, 16-35 G, 100 F2 from rokinon and they have served me well. I just find myself missing the 70-200 badly and can't stomach the cost of the sony when i am not shooting for pay anymore. When i was making money doing this, i would have bought it forever ago and never looked back!

Obviously there are tamron versions of the 70-200 2.8 for canon that are super affordable and work well, but again - i am unsure of what adapter would work for them and if i would lose any of the features or sharpness that i would get if it wasn't adapted.

I do find myself looking at some of my old canon work from portraits to auto and being impressed with the IQ. Then looking at my Sony pics and having mixed feelings about it.

I feel like a pre-teen girl that doesn't know what she wants FFS lol

Soooooo has anyone in here that came from shooting canon had thoughts about going back? Idk what has gotten into me lately, but i can't stop thinking about selling my sony gear and going back to a 5d3 and L glass. I'm not sure if it is the cost of quality native lenses that is bothering me all the sudden or what.

I'm sold on the Loxia lenses and the way they work with the A7R bodies. I don't see myself leaving Sony for Canon. I have a substantial investment in Canon glass and I'm hopeful that the A7R3 will work better with adapted Canon lenses. If that proves true, I'll continue to straddle the fence and keep both Sony and Canon systems.

I'm waiting to get my hands on an evaluation copy of the new Canon TS-E 135mm tilt shift. It promises to be an interesting lens.

I do wish Sony would hurry up and make a native E mount TS lens.

I use to do alot of lanscape shooting in Northern Spain and Portugal at that time using an RSS pano kit with a I series Canon body and the weight of the backpack made it less than comfortable to say the least.
In respect to adapters I currently use the Metabones IV adapter with all of my Canon mount lenses, the only Canon mount lens that I currently have that is still auto focus is the 85L and the Sigma 135 F1.8, the rest are all manual focus. The metabones works very well with the current lens that I have for typical lanscape shooting.

I do wish that Sony would release a TSE lens similar to the Canon 24TSE, I still use the Canon but I would prefer a native solution for those types of lenses.

I know. Sucks you barely missed the first shipment. I'm surprised that Sony wasn't able to full-fill all of the orders.

Has anyone used the FotodioX adapter with any success? reviews seem solid, price is outstanding. I have a friend selling a Tamron 70-200 2.8 from his 5d3 for cheap that i am considering picking up to see if this fills my void and makes me happy.

Found a great deal on a contax Lens but it’s been declicked. Is that anything to worry about? I’ve asked if the aperture ring still has decent resistance

It’s here! The rental made it here in time for the trip. Can’t wait to give it a try at Disney World next week, though like I said earlier that Leica CL is looking rather appealing to me, for all the wrong reasons.

No way most especially because of the EVF, Eye Focus, dynamic range and the size. Remember how the Canon keeps beeping for focus confirmation and when you get to your computer, a lot of them are out of focus? Not to mention the front and back focus issue.

Colors can always be enhance in post so i don't miss canon colors.

Personally, EVF (in fact, in many conditions, I even slightly prefer OVF), Eye AF and many of the Sony bells and whistles are something I see more as tech rather than substantially photography improving features. Dynamic range and size, partly, are the two things that keep me with Sony. But the fact that you have to fix colors in post is a problem for me.

I'm still invested in Canon system, and I don't plan to fully move away, not until I see Sony paying more attention to colors. If Canon can release a camera with dynamic range of the A7rii, I'm very much likely to abandon Sony. For size, I have the x100f.
